Celanese Dedicates New Emulsions Facility in Nanjing

November 2, 2007

CHINA: Celanese formally dedicated its 10th global polymer emulsions facility in Nanjing, China, as part of the inaugural celebration of its integrated chemical complex.

Though the plant is new, Celanese has been serving the region for more than two years with high-quality vinyl-acetate/ethylene, vinyl and acrylic-based waterborne emulsions through its expert commercial and technical teams based in Shanghai.

Barry Snyder, technology director for emulsions & PVOH, said that Celanese is also staffing a new laboratory in nearby Shanghai with industry experts to support coating, adhesive, nonwovens and glass fiber customers.

At the new complex in Nanjing, the acetic acid plant began commercial production in June. The emulsions facility will begin commercial production by the end of the year, and the rest of the plants will come on-stream throughout 2008.
