Kemira invests in emulsion polymer manufacturing in Alabama USA

February 11/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Kemira has announced a two-year investment of around EUR 60 million to significantly increase production of high molecular weight emulsion polymers at its manufacturing site in Mobile, Alabama, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

These polymers are primarily used in the oil and gas industry, where Kemira is a leading supplier. Additionally, this expansion allows Kemira to modernize into bio-based acrylamide capabilities at the Mobile site.

"For Kemira this investment is an important step towards the growth objectives outlined in our strategy. It also secures our position as a leading global polymer producer and demonstrates our continued commitment to the oil and gas industry." said Pedro Materan, SVP, Oil & Gas.

Construction at Mobile is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2019 with full commercial operation in early 2021. The project will also create 20 new full-time positions at the site which currently employs about 60 people.

As MRC informed before, in December 2018, Kemira received final authority permits and closed the deal announced on September 29, 2017. Kemira formed a joint venture with an AKD producer in China. Kemira forms a joint venture - Kemira TC Wanfeng Chemicals Yanzhou - with Shandong Tiancheng Wanfeng Chemical Technology.
