KBR Inc. has been awarded a nitric acid plant revamp contract by Haifa Chemicals Ltd for its plant in Mishor-Rotem, Israel.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR subsidiary, Weatherly Inc., will design, supply and commission a complete system for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of nitrogen oxides (NOX), with additional catalyst beds for N2O and NH3 slip abatement. The SCR system will be integrated into two existing nitric acid plants that Haifa operates in Israel. Both plants were designed by KBR Weatherly and commissioned in 1987 and 1999.

"We are proud of these two successful plants that were designed by KBR Weatherly and we look forward to modifying them to meet stricter environmental regulations," said John Derbyshire, KBR President, Technology. "This revamp contract is a testimony to the trust placed by our clients in technologies from KBR Weatherly during the past six decades."

Weatherly Inc. has a history of serving the fertilizer industry with over 250 installations worldwide including over 75 nitric acid plants.
