Mott MacDonald appointed EPCM consultant for catalyst regeneration plant, India

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Eurecat SA Group as engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) consultant for a state-of-the-art catalyst regeneration plant located at Jhagadia in the state of Gujarat, India.

Eurecat Group is the world leader in ex-situ catalyst regeneration and reprocessing. It has its own marketing, logistics, research and development laboratory, plant and storage facilities. Catalysts are used in the petroleum industry and to achieve reaction processes during production of fuels and fuel products. Over time the performance of catalysts is reduced. Performance is restored through temperature and chemical treatment, or regeneration. Catalysts contribute towards increasing the supply of petroleum by making it commercially possible to produce oil from sources once regarded as uneconomical, such as tar sands and heavy oil deposits. The catalyst regeneration global market for environmental and energy applications is projected to reach $US22.5 billion by 2015. Meeting rising energy requirements and protecting the environment are among the most important applications of catalyst technologies.

The 2000 tonne production facility is aimed to enhance the reaction process through catalysts which are brought from the refinery and then regenerated almost to the same strength. The facility will also include a utility building, main scrubbing system, off gas burner, tank farm, water treatment plant and a storage facility.

Mott MacDonald’s role will involve detailed engineering of a dust collection system and waste gas processing system. The consultancy will also assist the client in procuring the material handling equipment, electrical equipment and environment processing items as well as providing construction management services.

U M Mukherjee, Mott MacDonald’s project manager said, “We are committed to assisting our customer in the development of this catalyst regeneration and rejuvenation plant at a fraction of the cost of developing a facility to produce new catalysts. We are able to reduce turn-around time by avoiding in-situ catalyst regeneration and improve catalyst inventory management and waste management.”

He further added, “We are delighted to be a part of this project which is helping to enhance the catalyst regeneration process with zero effluent discharge and sewerage treatment. It will provide our younger engineers with the experience they need to develop the skill sets required to deliver such iconic projects in the future.”
