World Fertilizer,

The first grassroots melamine plant ever in South East Asia will rely on Casale's LEM™ melamine process.

The facility in Gurun, Kedah, Malaysia will produce 60 000 tpy on single line and it will be realised on an EPCC basis by Technip Energies(M) Sdn Bhd and Dialog Group Bhd for Petronas Chemicals Fertiliser Kedah Sdn Bhd (Malaysia).

Casale will deliver licence, know-how, process design package, engineering assistance and proprietary items for the melamine plant and will be responsible to ensure the smooth integration with the existing ammonia-stripping urea plant, which will receive the off gases of the melamine plant.

Federico Zardi, CEO and owner of Casale, stated: “We are very happy by this new success, especially for the detailed technical and economical selection process Casale and Technip have gone through during the dual-FEED stage of this project. Being the third melamine in a row, over the last 12 months, it clearly underlines the significant preference of the market for cutting-edge LEM process which is considered the benchmark by the most reputed customers. It goes without saying that we are proud of this project, led by Technip and Dialog, which will realize the first melamine plant for Petronas Group”.
