MOSCOW (MRC) -- Nouryon has plans to invest in its facility in Ningbo, China, to significantly increase the capacity of organic peroxide products Perkadox 14 and Trigonox 101, said Process-worldwide.
With this investment, Nouryon will double the annual production capacity to 6000 tons each for Perkadox 14 and Trigonox 101 organic peroxides by mid-2024. These essential products will support growing regional and global demand for a variety of applications including hygiene products and non-woven textiles used in health care, including face masks. Additional applications include plastics recycling, and a wide range of rubber goods, including rubber hoses, seals, cable insulation, athletic shoe soles, and yoga mats.
“Asia Pacific is a key region for Nouryon, and China plays an important role in our growth journey towards increased customer satisfaction and volumes. Our customers rely on our existing network of manufacturing facilities and innovative technologies, and we are pleased to build more capacity to meet growing customer demand,” said Johan Landfors, Executive Vice President Strategy and Technology Solutions at Nouryon.
We remind, Nouryon announced that it has commissioned a chlorine dioxide plant to modernize and expand the Arauco pulp mill in Chile. The project, called the MAPA project, is a USD2.35 billion pulp mill and is the largest industrial project in the Biobio region. The new plant adds 1.56 million tons per year of eucalyptus pulp capacity to Arauco’s footprint that will be supplied to its customers.
