Pengyue Eco-technology, a subsidiary of Guizhou Chanhen Chemical Corporation, put its new phosphoric acid plant into operation at the end of August 2022.
The project is located in Guangxi and has been divided into two phases. This August marked the completion of the first phase project. The total design capacity of the project is about 400 000 t P2O5 per year. Products include merchant grade phosphoric acid (MGA, P2O5≥52%), purified phosphoric acid, feed grade phosphate, anhydrous hydrogen fluoride, etc.
The first phase of the project being in operation enables 200 000 t P2O5 annual design capacity, and mainly offers MGA (P2O5≥52%) for the market. The first phase of project is expected to deliver 15 000 t of P2O5 to the market monthly.
The project is located 170 km away from Qinzhou Port and Beihai Port, which facilitates MGA export. Recently, the company has successfully participated in the BCIC tender for phosphoric acid, entering the final valuation process. Business relationships have also been established between Guizhou Chanhen and key MGA customers including those from India.
Guizhou Chanhen is a listed company with more than 20 years of successful experience in the phosphate industry. Its traditional products are feed-grade and fertilizer-grade phosphates. Guizhou Chanhen possesses access to 550 million t of phosphate rock reserve in Guizhou Province, China. With continuous development, the company plans to reach 10 million t of phosphate rock production capacity annually within the next 3 – 4 years, thereby ensuring raw material supply of its own phosphate industry. With the Pengyue eco-technology project being put into operation, the company will become one of the largest merchant grade phosphoric acid suppliers in East Asia/Southeast Asia.
