Chlor-alkali project

KBR has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction contract by a wholly owned subsidiary of Molycorp to build a new Chlor-Alkali plant as part of Molycorp’s Project Phoenix.
The Chlor-Alkali plant construction is one of various projects that make up Molycorp’s estimated USD 781 million program to reactivate the company’s rare earth oxides (REO) mine, and expand and modernize its flagship rare earth facility in Mountain Pass, Calif.
Molycorp is the Western hemisphere’s only producer of REO. KBR will build upon its existing global experience in chlorine products to construct a facility implementing the Chlor-Alkali process, an important part of the modernization of Molycorp’s rare earth manufacturing facility.
