Johnson Matthey awarded a methanol technology contract for ESN-Group

Johnson Matthey (JM), a global leader in sustainable technologies announced on its website that its combined reforming methanol technology has been selected by JSC Technoleasing for the new Amur Oblast facility, located in Skovorodino, Russia.  

 JM will provide a license for the 3,000 mtpd plant and will include their new Advanced Series Loop technology, which utilises an innovative synthesis loop arrangement together with existing reactor technology to achieve a significant improvement in natural gas efficiency.  The contract also includes the associated engineering, proprietary equipment and catalyst supply.

Technoleasing is a part of ESN Group - one of Russia's largest holding companies.

Pending a final investment decision (FID) by Technoleasing, this will be the first JM licenced methanol plant in Russia using the combined reforming and Advanced Series Loop technology. It represents JM’s commitment to providing its world class expertise and sustainable technologies to Russia’s growing petrochemical industry.

Johnson Matthey’s combined reforming methanol technology turned out to be the best available technology for the Skovorodino plant. We are very much focused on ecological issue as well as plant’s efficiency in consumption of natural resources. We are looking forward for cooperation with JM in building the plant and introducing this technology in Russia.

Vadim Medvedev, General Director, Technoleasing
