Mubadala says subsidiary begins producing N95 masks with Honeywell

May 21/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Abu Dhabi state fund Mubadala Investment Company said on Tuesday its subsidiary Strata Manufacturing has started to produce the N95 face masks used to protect medical workers fighting the deadly coronavirus, said Reuters.

The venture, in partnership with Honeywell International , will have an annual output capacity of over 30 million masks, Mubadala said in a statement.

This manufacturing line will not only be able to meet the national requirements of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) health industry...but also transform the UAE into an exporter of this critical product, Mubadala said.

The UAE currently imports all the N95 masks it requires, the statement added.

Strata, established in 2009, has an aero parts manufacturing facility in Al Ain, an oasis town within the Abu Dhabi emirate, producing components for Airbus, Boeing and others.

The UAE has confirmed 24,190 cases of the coronavirus with 224 deaths.

We also remind that China's greenfield Zhejiang Petrochemical will use a range of process technology from Honeywell UOP for the second phase of its integrated refining and petrochemical complex in Zhoushan, Zhejiang province, according to a document, quoting a senior Honeywell official. "This second phase of the complex by itself will process 20 million tons per year of crude oil and produce another six million tons per year of aromatics when completed," Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager, Process Technology and Equipment, at Honeywell UOP, stated in the document as of January 2019.

ACN is the main feedstock for the production of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's ABS output was 920 tonnes in March. Russian producers manufactured 2,600 tonnes of ABS plastics in January-March 2020, down by 59% a year earlier.
