Arkema expands thiochemicals global manufacturing capacity for linear mercaptans

November 07/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Arkema has announced a project to increase its linear mercaptans production capacities to support the demand growth of polymers for transportation and electronics markets, as per the company's press release.

This incremental investment would increase the Houston (Texas) plants manufacturing capacity by up to 30%.

"Arkema is the worlds leading producer of mercaptans and other sulfur derivatives, and this investment would further strengthen that position. The expansion would position us to better serve our customers needs and support their growth," said Frederic Vartician, Global Group President of Thiochemicals.
The total new capacity should come online in the first half of 2020.

As MRC informed before, in March 2017, Arkema completed the sale to INEOS of its 50% stake in Oxochimie, their oxo alcohols manufacturing joint venture, and of the associated business.

Arkema is a leading European supplier of chlorochemicals and PVC. Kynar and Kynar Flex are registered trademarks of Arkema Inc.
