Rhodia Completes Multi-Million Dollar Upgrade

March 6, 2007

Growing customer demand for enhanced personal care products has prompted a multi-million dollar manufacturing upgrade at a Chicago-area plant operated by specialty chemical producer Rhodia Inc.

The project includes an upgraded reactor system (sulphonation) and blending vessels that increase Rhodia’s overall capacity for specialty surfactant products. These improvements allow the site to meet growing demand for Rhodia's Miracare SLB structured surfactant compositions
Miracare SLB products are innovative structured liquid systems used in personal care cleansing products. The Miracare SLB products impart multiple sensorial and performance benefits, especially the long-lasting moisturizing effects that are increasingly popular with consumers. The Miracare SLB line also allows very diverse textures for skin care products, from cream to lotion-like.

Other enhancements at the Blue Island plant include an improved control system, additional product storage, and quality assurance, mechanical, environmental and safety upgrades. More info:
