Uninhibited formalin production now comes onstream at Acron JSC (Russia)

Acron JSC (Russia) commissioned a new unit for low methanol grade formalin on July 19, and just eleven days later, the unit reached its design capacity of 225 tonnes per day, said the company on August 14.

The 75,000 tonne/year unit produces low-methanol formalin and urea-formaldehyde concentrate to be used as raw material at a new urea-formaldehyde resins facility of the company. The 105,000 tpa facility will  be finished this September.

Both productions are based at Acron site, in its formalin and resins division. The project applies modern technologies and equipment  by German and Danish manufacturers. The engineering plan was developed by two industrial design companies, Uhde JSC (Dzerzhinsk) and  Novgorodsky GIAP Ltd. (Veliky Novgorod).

The new facilities are environmentally safe, ensuring lowest emissions and zero effluent.

Acron invested over USD20m in the construction of the formalin unit as part of its USD1.4bn investment programme covering the period up to 2015.
