Clariant expands catalyst production in China
Specialty chemicals company Clariant has announced a significant expansion of its catalyst production facility in Panjin, Liaoning Province in northeastern China.
A double-digit million euro investment will further optimise the existing plant and enable the installation of a production line for Clariant's maleic anhydride (MA) production catalysts. Production is expected to increase from 1.75 million tonnes in 2018 to 2.07 million tonnes in 2022. MA is an important component of polymers and coatings for the construction, automotive, shipbuilding and energy industries.
Investment in the Chinese market
Clariant has been producing catalysts for MA production in Panjin since 2007 as part of a joint venture with North Huajin Chemical Industries Group Corporation, one of China's leading petrochemical companies. At the site, more than 140 employees produce catalysts and adsorbents for the production of butane-based maleic anhydride, ammonia, hydrogen and methanol and other applications.
Titanium Dioxide (2nd Revised Edition) Production, Properties and Effective Usage This second, completely revised edition contains a wealth of information on the properties and use of titanium dioxide pigments. It gives the reader a comprehensive insight into how titanium dioxide works and its possible applications, as well as discussing the current state of development and its use in various forms for UV absorbers, effect pigments and catalytic materials. Practitioners will especially welcome the fact that Chapter 4 now includes information on the scope for, and limitations on, replacing titanium dioxide pigments in formulations.
