WACKER expands polymer site in China and builds two new production facilities

March 06/2012
(wacker) -- Wacker Chemie AG is expanding its Chinese polymer activities by investing around EUR40 million in building two new production facilities at its Nanjing site.

As announced by the Munich-based chemical group today, it is expanding the sites existing facilities for vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer (VAE) dispersions by adding a new reactor with an annual capacity of 60,000 metric tons. This measure will double Nanjings VAE dispersion capacity to approx. 120,000 metric tons per year, making the complex one of the biggest of its kind in China.

The new reactor is scheduled to come on stream in mid-2013. At Nanjing, WACKER is also building a new plant to produce polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) solid resins with an annual capacity of 20,000 metric tons. This plant is due for completion in early 2013.
