KBR has been awarded an ammonia technology contract from DL E&C for NeuRizer's (formerly Leigh Creek Energy Ltd) carbon-neutral fertilizer project in Australia. Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide technology licensing and engineering for the 1600 tpd ammonia plant based on KBR's Purifier® process.
Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology said: "We are excited to provide our energy-efficient ammonia technology to DL E&C for NeuRizer's flagship carbon-neutral project for the local and export agriculture markets. This project reaffirms our commitment to continuing to explore novel ways to help our clients meet their business and sustainability targets."
NeuRizer (NRZ) is the company responsible for progressing the NeuRizer Urea Project (NRUP). Located in South Australia, 550 km north of Adelaide, the NRUP will initially produce 1 million tpy of urea fertilizer with potential to increase to 2 million tpy.
NRZ is a certified carbon-neutral organisation having been awarded Climate Active certification in March 2022 and is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. The NRUP is carbon-neutral by design, and the decarbonisation pathway for the NRUP is embedded in the FEED process to ensure that the NRUP achieves zero-carbon operations from first operations in 2025.
