Ak­zoNo­bel Spe­cialty Chem­i­cals to ex­pand fa­cil­ity in Ma­ha­rash­tra

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

Ak­zoNo­bel Spe­cialty Chem­i­cals will be ex­pand­ing ca­pac­ity and up­grade its or­ganic per­ox­ides fa­cil­ity in Ma­had in Ma­ha­rash­tra to meet grow­ing de­mand from cus­tomers in In­dia and the Mid­dle East. The ex­pan­sion of the fa­cil­ity is ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of 2018.

“This ex­pan­sion will al­low us to build on our strong pres­ence in nu­mer­ous or­ganic per­ox­ide mar­ket seg­ments, par­tic­u­larly in PVC, acrylics and ther­moset resins,” Jo­han Land­fors, mem­ber of the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee re­spon­si­ble for poly­mer chem­i­cals said. In ad­di­tion to the ca­pac­ity ex­pan­sion, a new waste wa­ter man­age­ment sys­tem will also be in­stalled to make the process en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able.

The com­pany is also in­vest­ing in a monochloroacetic acid project in a joint ar­range­ment with Atul in Gu­jarat, due to start pro­duc­tion in 2019.
