Jacobs receives contract for boron expansion project  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (Pasadena, Calif.; www.jacobs.com) says it was awarded a contract from Rio Tinto Minerals (RTM) to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for its plant expansion project in Boron, Calif. Officials are currently estimating the total project value at approximately $150 million. The expanded plant is designed to increase capacity and to use RTM’s new technology, Modified Direct Dissolving of Kernite Ore (MDDK), a process which allows sodium borate and boric acid production to continue until end of mine life. Rio Tinto Minerals is a global leader in industrial mineral supply and science, providing nearly half the world’s supply of refined borates.
