This investment will be based on an innovative and environmental friendly technology.

Growth of HQ and MEHQ markets

In addition, the Global Business Unit will extend its worldwide Methyl hydroquinone (MEHQ also referred as PMP – paramethoxyphenol) capacity. Both projects will support Solvay captive needs as well as the growth of HQ and MEHQ markets, particularly in Asia.

Dominique Rage, President of the GBU, says:

"This decision will strengthen the company leading position in growing markets like Monomer inhibition with a full range of solutions including PTZ coming from Cytec acquisition, Specialty polymers and coatings applications as well as food & feed antioxidants on which we are positioning ourselves.

"This major capacity increase enhances our reliability towards our customers and will allow for new growth opportunities” he adds.
