The new reactor replaces two decommissioned reactors of 45,000 tons each. The investment in the new acrylic acid reactor at the Clear Lake site amounts to approximately EUR 80.7 million.

This new capacity will enable the Group to support the growth of its North American customers in markets such as superabsorbents, paints and coatings, adhesives, and polymers for water treatment and enhanced oil and gas recovery.
