We performed front-end design, detailed engineering, procurement, and construction for a 200,000-ton-per-year polyvinyl chloride production unit at Plaquemine, LA. Built to expand PVC production at an existing complex, the unit contains suspension batch polymerization, stripping and recovery, and drying operations, including the recycle of hot water streams for heat recovery. Solid product is sent to existing bulk resin storage/shipping facilities. Reactor and stripping tower designs were based on existing facilities.
