Nouryon starts production at new facility
The facility, which began development in 2020, has an annual capacity of 35,000 tons and will produce two key intermediates – tert-Butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) and tert-Butyl alcohol (TBA) – which are essential ingredients in the production of polymers and composites.
“Nouryon is pleased to further support our customers across Asia now that operations are up and running at our new China facility,” said Alain Rynwalt, Vice President of Polymer Specialties at Nouryon. “This investment supports Nouryon’s commitment to meet the growing needs of our customers in the region for products such as safe and hygienic food packaging, paint resins and PVC pipes.”
Six manufacturing facilities
Nouryon’s Ningbo site is comprised of six manufacturing facilities that produce chelating agents, organic peroxides, ethylene amines, cellulose ethers and surfactants. In Asia, Nouryon produces organic peroxides in Ningbo and Tianjin, China; Asa, Japan; and Mahad, India.
