The first basic melamine plant in Southeast Asia will be based on Casale’s LEM™ melamine process.

The Gurun, Kedah, Malaysia facility will produce 60,000 tpa on a single line and will be built on an EPCC basis by Technip Energies(M) Sdn Bhd and Dialog Group Bhd for Petronas Chemicals Fertilizer Kedah Sdn Bhd (Malaysia).

Casale will provide licensing, know-how, process design package, technical assistance and proprietary elements for the melamine plant and will be responsible for ensuring smooth integration with the urea stripping plant of existing ammonia, which will receive off-gases from the melamine plant.

Federico Zardi, CEO and Owner of Casale, said: “We are very pleased with this new success, especially for the detailed technical and economic selection process that Casale and Technip followed during the double FEED phase of this project. . Being the third consecutive melamine, in the last 12 months, it clearly underlines the strong market preference for the state-of-the-art LEM process which is considered the gold standard by the most reputable customers. It goes without saying that we are proud of this project, led by Technip and Dialog, which will build the Petronas Group’s first melamine plant”.
