CPI has just announced significant news on some recent process technology developments, which we are happy to pass along.
CPI, one of PROCESS’ clients, has recently announced development of a new high-efficiency small-scale ammonia production process.
Natural gas is the feed material for the catalyzed process which includes innovations such as air cooling, Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) to remove excess carbon dioxide and nitrogen, the use of screw compressors in a relatively low-pressure synthesis section, and more. The process has recently received a U.S. patent. CPI is currently seeking sales opportunities and strategic partnerships globally. Advantageous plant site targets may include remote agricultural locations with excess or stranded gas supplies, as well as regional farming cooperatives seeking to gain tighter control over their fertilizer supply and reduce shipping & storage costs. Certain markets for ammonia derivative products (ammonium nitrate, diammonium phosphate, etc.) may also find the small modular process to their advantage.
We wish CPI continued success as they seek to commercialize this exciting technology. Follow this link to view the full article recently published in the Jan/Feb 2019 edition of Fertilizer Focus, page 49 – 51; Bridging the Gap for Small Scale Ammonia Production, by Derek Lennon.
