Clariant brings new value to ammonia methanol and hydrogen industry in Asia with advanced catalyst products

  • Key catalyst products AmoMax®-10 and MegaMax® 800 to be featured at Asian Nitrogen + Syngas 2015 Conference
  • Sustainability and performance improvement achieved through superior end-to-end service and key local support
Singapore, October 19, 2015 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, is highlighting to the ammonia, methanol and hydrogen industry in South East Asia its advanced catalyst products at the Asian Nitrogen + Syngas 2015 conference to be held on 26-28 October at the Ritz Carlton in Jakarta, Indonesia. AmoMax®-10 and MegaMax® 800, two of the company's innovative catalysts with strong sustainability and productivity profile, will be featured at a technical workshop in the conference to explain how additional value is created through their application.

As a leading supplier of Syngas catalysts, Clariant is enhancing its already strong technology in the Syngas business in South East Asia and in particular Indonesia, where more ammonia plants are being built with manufacturers looking to get more value out of their catalytic operations. Clariant's highly active AmoMax-10, widely considered one of the most significant breakthroughs after 100 years of Ammonia synthesis using the Haber-Bosch Process, conserves energy in ammonia synthesis as it optimizes yield. It enables ammonia plant operators to achieve excellent performance, energy savings and production efficiency.

Clariant's other featured product at the Conference, MegaMax 800, creates value for the users by greatly increasing the capacity of methanol plants. MegaMax 800 is an advanced and highly stable methanol catalyst with a long life, a low amount of byproducts and the flexibility to run in large and small production units with a variety of production technologies.

"As a fully dedicated Syngas catalyst supplier in the region with local production capability in Indonesia, Clariant demonstrates its strong commitment to the South East Asia region by establishing a strong regional presence with outstanding technical support. By forging strong partnerships with process licensors like KBR and Casale, we are able to render full support for our customers on process optimization and thereby increasing the profitability of their production," said Harald Dialer, Head of Business Segment Syngas, BU Catalysts, Clariant.

In addition to supplying catalyst products, Clariant's Catalysts business unit offers its customers complete service regarding the use of catalysts. Such service begins with supplying process information to the engineering contractor or the customer during the initial stages of design and construction of a plant; continues through start-up services when the plant is placed online; and subsequent follow-up service to assist the customer in maintaining optimum operating performance of the catalysts.

Participants who are engaged in the ammonia, methanol and hydrogen industries are invited to join the workshop during the Asian Nitrogen + Syngas 2015 conference to learn more about Clariant's products and services. Clariant's session will be held at 14:00 - 18:00 on Monday 26 October 2015 under Stream Two of the workshop programm.
