This unique project was to develop a large scale industrial plant, capable of manufacturing ‘green plastics’ (i.e. polyethylene from biomass feedstock). P+i was engaged as financial advisor and development manager to Oswal Projects, which developed the $700M Burrup Fertiliser plant in Western Australia, the largest ammonia plant of its kind.
P+i assembled an international team of technical, chemical and engineering experts to assist in the completion of project concept and feasibility studies.
In addition to addressing unique technical issues, P+i worked with farmers to develop a year-round feedstock strategy which overcame crop seasonality. Project financial viability was tested throughout, using the bankable financial model developed by P+i.
