TechnipFMC and Clariant Catalysts, a developer of high-performance catalysts, have entered into a joint development agreement for the demonstration and commercialisation of Clariant’s new state-of-the-art AcryloMax propylene ammoxidation catalyst for the production of acrylonitrile. TechnipFMC is a leader in subsea, onshore/offshore, and surface projects.

The new collaboration will bring together Technip Energies’ well-established expertise in fluid bed technologies and process development with Clariant’s longstanding experience and knowledge in the development, manufacturing, and supply of catalysts for the petrochemical industry, according to a media statement by TechnipFMC.

AcryloMax supports the profitable and efficient production of acrylonitrile, which is an important intermediate in the value chain of plastics and synthetic fibres for the automotive and textile industries. The agreement is an example of Clariant’s and TechnipFMC’s efforts to develop and commercialise more efficient process technologies and to help customers achieve sustainability targets. Technip Energies’ Research Centre in Weymouth, Massachusetts, will soon be commissioning a large demonstration reactor to test the technology.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Clariant Catalysts in this development effort that leverages our synergistic capabilities and continues to bring to market leading technology solutions,” Stan Knez, president of TechnipFMC process technology said.

“We are delighted to work with TechnipFMC and to contribute our expertise in ammoxidation. For producers of acrylonitrile, this combination of catalyst and process technology know-how will open the door to exciting new opportunities,” Stefan Heuser, senior vice president and general manager at Clariant Catalysts said.
