ACES21 - Energy-saving Urea Process

Progress of the Evolution of Urea Process and the Energy conservation in TOYO
Sectors:
Objective:
CTCN Keyword Matches:
Technology:
Country:
Japan
Maturity:

ACES21 provides both energy saving and plant cost reduction in urea production supported by the following features:

  • Uniquely optimized process parameters of urea synthesis process under the milder operating conditions combined with multiple heat integration in downstream process realizes remarkable reduction in energy consumption in urea production process.
  • Forced circulation in synthesis loop by HP ejector without gravity flow provides compact and low-rise layout of plant
  • Two stage urea synthesis in the Vertical Submerged. Carbamate Condenser (VSCC) and in the reactor lessens number and volume of HP equipment in urea synthesis loop.
Organisation providing the technology:
Toyo Engineering Corporation
Benefits:

- 30 to 40% energy saving compared to conventional production technologies- 10 to 20% energy saving compared to modern production technologies

Co-benefits:

On top of substantial savings due to energy conservation, the following can be achieved:- Low investment cost (construction and equipment).- Easy operation and high on-stream factor- Low maintenance cost (due to factors such as milder operating condition)- Less corrosion- Clean effluents

Timeframe:

Typical EPC period: 3 years

Countries where implemented:
Indonesia
Case story of implementation:

12 implementations in 9 countries (Indonesia, China, Trinidad & Tobago, Iran, Venezuela, Bolivia, Nigeria, etc.)
