Under this agreement, KBR will be the exclusive licensor for PSI’s Ethylene Oxide/Ethylene Glycol (K-MEG), Alcohol Dehydration (K-SEET), and Maleic Anhydride (Max-Leic) technologies, which are used to convert ethanol into ethylene and further derivative chemicals used in a wide range of industry and consumer products.
We are excited to announce the alliance agreement with PSI for these differentiated ethanol and ethylene value chain technologies. Our collaboration will benefit clients globally and allow them to set new standards for meeting corporate ESG ambitions, said Doug Kelly, President, Technology at KBR.
PSI has developed these technologies over the past 30 years and is recognized as a leader in renewable ethanol and ethylene value chains and biorefineries.
KBR will license these technologies and provide engineering services for new biorefineries as well as integrate the technologies in existing refineries and petrochemical plants to offer sustainable alternatives.
PSI offers unique, patented, renewable, and sustainable technologies and services for broad industrial applications which are highly sought after today to reduce carbon footprint and mitigate climate change. We are proud to work with KBR, which has the right experience and leadership to help advance and commercialize our technologies on a global scale, said Yogendra Sarin, Founder, and CEO, PSI.
