Nouryon to build hydroperoxide facility in China

Tuesday, 28 July 2020

Nouryon will start development of a manufacturing facility at its current site in Ningbo, China to produce two key intermediates for its organic peroxides business: tert-Butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) and tert-Butyl alcohol (TBA).

Organic peroxides are essential ingredients in the production of polymers and composites.

The manufacturing facility is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2021 and will have an annual capacity for 35,000 tons of TBHP/TBA. TBHP is an intermediate in Nouryon’s organic peroxide production process and is also used as a polymerisation initiator for coating resins and other products; TBA is a raw material used both for the production of organic peroxides and other specialty chemicals.

Nanjing Jinling Huntsman will provide raw materials

Nouryon has entered into a long-term partnership with Nanjing Jinling Huntsman (NJH), which will provide raw materials for the new facility. NJH will build a storage tank and loading station at its facility in Nanjing for transfer to Nouryon’s Ningbo site.

"This is an important step in integrating our regional supply chain for TBHP, which is currently imported from overseas," said Johan Landfors, President of Technology Solutions at Nouryon. "Demand for TBHP and TBA continues to rise in Asia, and our new facility will ensure that we can meet that demand for years to come."
