MOSCOW (MRC) -- Clariants Catalysts business unit has opened a new office in Jakarta. This third location for Engineering Services in Asia-Pacific (APAC) brings the global total to 16 offices, said the company.

The expansion is aimed at enhancing regional support, particularly in the southern APAC countries, with a focus on catalysts for ethylene and styrene and syngas applications, as well as distillate upgrading, hydrogenation, and oxidation.

Inaugurated in September, the new office is based at Clariants site in Tangerang, near Jakarta, Indonesia. The catalyst specialists appointed for the office will work closely with regional colleagues. Clariant already operates a joint-venture catalyst production facility near Jakarta, in Cikampek.

Stefan Heuser, Senior Vice President & General Manager Business Unit Catalysts at Clariant, commented on the development, stating, "APAC is a vast region with a wide distribution of customers having diverse requirements and applications. The investment brings value to our customers businesses, as it allows us to work more closely on their challenges, and respond more quickly with optimal solutions."

The new office is based at Clariants site in Tangerang, near the capital city of Jakarta. Clariant operates a joint-venture catalyst production facility near Jakarta, in Cikampek.

As MRC  informed earlier, Clariant announced that it has been awarded a contract by Dongguan Grand Resource Science & Technology Co. Ltd. to develop a new propane dehydrogenation unit in cooperation with CB&I. The Dongguan plant will be one of the largest single-train dehydrogenation units in the world. Clariant's technology partner CB&I will base the plant's design on its Catofin catalytic dehydrogenation technology, which uses Clariant's tailor-made Catofin catalyst and Heat Generating Material (HGM).
