LONDON (ICIS)--Technip has been awarded an engineering services contract by Belgium-based Solvay for studying the construction of a greenfield epichlorohydrin (ECH) plant in Taixing, Jiangsu province, China, the French engineering group said on Tuesday.

The plant will use Solvay’s green technology, Epicerol, and will produce 100,000 tonnes/year of ECH from glycerine. Output will supply domestic Chinese demand.

Technip said it expects to complete the contract in the second half of 2013.

Solvay announced in December 2010 that it was considering to build the plant.

The Chinese ECH market represents 29% of the world’s market share, according to Solvay.
