Pörner Group's successful Turn-key realization of a Formalin Plant for Lanxess
The scope of services of Pörner Grimma covered the turn-key supply of the whole plant including authority engineering, basic and detail engineering, purchasing, logistics, construction, site management and supervision, commissioning and documentation. Apart from the processing plant, which included a downstream thermal exhaust gas treatment and a heat recovery system, infrastructure-related equipment such as a methanol tank and a formalin double-walled tank, a formalin unloading facility and an extensive piping system to integrate the new complex in the existing infrastructure were supplied.
Dr. Fink expressed his gratitude to all companies involved for having efficiently handled the project under the management of the Pörner Group and met the budget and deadlines. He also mentioned that products were put out according to specifications from the first start-up. The guaranteed parameters as well as expected values in terms of methanol and energy consumption came considerably below the expected ones.
Sophisticated technology package to preserve the environment
The technology provider was Dynea AS from Norway having been the Pörner's partner for many years. The decision of awarding Pörner Grimma with the plant construction and using the Dynea silver catalyst technology was taken after a detailed commercial and technical comparison between all formalin technologies being available on the market. The main criteria were:
‐ Safe and failure-free operation
‐ Environment friendliness
‐ Investment and operating cost incl. the catalyst cost
‐ Operability and maintainability
The process itself and the use of state-of-the-art equipment enables Lanxess to produce high-quality formalin in a very energy-efficient and enviromentally safe manner. Start-up and shut-down of the plant take place based on a unique adsorber process retaining all pollutants in the plant. Afterwards they are further thermally processed and disposed of in normal plant operation. Moreover, steam generated during formalin production is fed into the Lanxess TMP operation, thus providing a more or less self-sufficient energy supply to the plant.
This is already the 11th plant successfully planned and put into operation by the Pörner Group and Dynea using the Dynea Silver catalyst technology. In the last decade formalin plants with a design capacity of more than 1 million tons per annum (37%) were built based on the safest and most cost-efficient, state-of-the-art technology.
