Casale acquires CO2 Removal Process from Karpov Institute of Physical Chemistry
26 June 2018
Casale is pleased to announce its acquisition of the license and all know-how of the CO2 Removal Process developed and owned by Karpov Institute of Physical Chemistry (Russia).
In the recent past Casale’s corporate mission has been to become a global provider of the complete production chain of nitrogen fertilizers, from the feedstocks to the end-products.
This acquisition further strengthens Casale’s rich and comprehensive portfolio of processes with a technology that has found wide and successful application in many ammonia plants design by GIAP (Russia), such as the so-called AM-70, AM 76 and AM-80 types. Several of such plants, in Russia and other former USSR countries, are still in operation and have proved able to operate at capacities of 2000 MTD or more, after suitable revamping.
The distinctive feature of Karpov’s CO2 Removal Process is the peculiar design of the internal parts of both the absorber and stripper columns.
The access to Karpov’s technology allows Casale to revamp a GIAP ammonia plant up to 2100 MTD and more, substantially keeping the CO2 removal section, except for few modifications to the internals of the columns.
This feature simplifies the whole revamp and helps to greatly reduce the overall cost, as proven in the revamp carried out by Casale of the GIAP-designed plant at Nevinnomysk Azot.
A similar revamp, by Casale, at Novomoscosk Azot's GIAP ammonia plant is due to follow suit.
