AkzoNobel breaks ground on organic peroxide site in China
Akzo Nobel Specialty Chemicals has officially broken ground for construction of a state-of-the-art organic peroxide production facility in Tianjin, China. Organic peroxides are essential in the manufacture of a wide range of polymers including PVC and thermoset resins.
The €90-million facility, located in the Tianjin Nangang Industrial Zone, will replace the company’s existing organic peroxides plant in Tianjin, and supports efforts being made by Chinese authorities to optimize urban planning and produce an industrial upgrade in the country’s chemical industry.
Scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2020, it will also provide capacity expansions of between 30 and 70 percent depending on product line, allowing the company to support the growth of its customers.
