Solvay Opens SGD 50 Million Chemical Plant

Solvay opened its SGD 50 million specialty surfactants plant in Singapore. It also announced completion of the expansion of an oil and gas lab at its research and innovation centre here, banking on optimism that upstream oil exploration activity in Asia will continue apace given the drive towards energy self-sufficiency in many countries. Solvay's plant by its Novecare business line will customise specialty alkoxylate formulations to the requirements of customers in the agrochemicals, coatings, home and personal care, industrial, and oil and gas sectors in Asia, which has a fast-growing middle class. It will serve multinational corporations such as Unilever, and Procter & Gamble and smaller local firms in South-east Asia. The plant, which has a production capacity of 50,000 tonnes a year, will complement existing facilities in India and China and contribute about one-eighth of Solvay Nove-care's global alkoxylate production volumes when running at full capacity next year. It will hire nearly 40 staff. Solvay Novecare has seven other specialty alkoxylation plants in the world.

Solvay SA Launches Highly Dispersible Silica Plant in Central Poland

Solvay has commenced commercial production of highly dispersible silica (HDS) at a new plant in central Poland. The €75 million installation in Wloclawek, Pomerania, has the capacity to produce 85,000 tonnes/year of HDS, used as a reinforcing agent in the rubber of fuel-saving tyres. The Polish plant, which would create more than 100 jobs, is to manufacture Solvay's most developed highly dispersible silica grades. Solvay's HDS brands include Zeosil Premium and Efficium. The latter product helps tyre producers to push up the output levels of tyre compounds for both car and trucks. The company now has silica production sites in nine locations across Europe, South America, North America and Asia. Solvay is currently constructing a plant in South Korea that will produce Efficium.
