EZOCM JSC establishes cooperation with the world's largest producers of nitric acid
Ekaterinburg Non-Ferrous Metals Processing Plant JSC (the basic enterprise of PLAURUM International Group) continues to develop cooperation with large world manufacturers of nitric acid and mineral fertilizers in the field of catalyst systems supplies. For this purpose, the enterprise took part in the second international scientific and practical conference "Innovative Solutions in Production of Mineral Fertilizers" (Scientific conference industrial fertilizers, SCIF-2018), held in Georgia (Batumi) from May 15 to 19, 2018.
The event which has been held for the second year at the initiative of the Georgian company Rustavi-Azot, has brought together producers of nitric acid and mineral fertilizers, developers and suppliers of equipment, engineering and technology centers, scientific institutions from 29 countries: Russia, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, Italy, Iran, India, Poland, China, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, etc. The largest world manufacturers such as Johnson Matthey, PLAURUM, and UMICORE presented their solutions in the field of catalyst systems.
"Last year we discussed with the conference participants that we are ready to render the full range of services with catalyst systems from their production and delivery to the client to their recycling and rendering of services," said Dmitry Shulgin, Director of Development EZOCM JSC. "Within the framework of this event, our catalyst systems for nitric acid production for AK-72 units and systems for production of hydrocyanic acid had been of particular interest."
In addition, SCIF-2018 hosted negotiations between EZOCM JSC and a number of large nitric acid producers from Russia and foreign countries. These companies were presented with the innovation of the plant - metal catalyst gauzes with platinum sputtering.
"We are constantly working to increase the service life and reduce the cost of catalyst systems` components by reducing the content of precious metals. To this end, we are developing new composite dispersion-strengthened materials for catalyst gauzes and technology for precious metals sputtering. This increases the economic efficiency of the catalyst system, which is one of the key requirements of the customer. These developments should be completed by 2020, but owing the strong interest of the customers, they will be accelerated," added Dmitry Shulgin.
