Ocsial expands production capacities in Europe
The new facility in Serbia is planned to have a 40 MT/y capacity. The synthesis plant is intended to contribute to lowering supply chain costs and to make it possible to deliver European-produced nanotubes and nanotube industrial solutions to customers in Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
As the company further points out, the nanotube synthesis facility will be accompanied by the production lines of more than 40 nanotube-based concentrates and dispersions designed to simplify industrial handling of nanotubes and will be launched in sequence in 2022-2023. These products are used in aerospace, automotive, construction, electronics, packaging and consumer goods.
The Serbian facility will be complemented by a larger nanotube manufacturing facility in Differdange, Luxembourg, in 2025.
