Clariant will expand its ethoxylation site at Clear Lake in Pasadena, TX. Following the first expansion in 2012, now already fully utilized, the investment will provide the necessary capacity to continue profitable growth of the Business Unit Industrial & Consumer Care (ICS) in North America and Latin America, the company said.

The products from Clear Lake are mainly used in home and personal care, textile, construction and other industrial applications.

The expansion includes new reactors and additional storage facilities, bringing the overall ethoxylation capacity to more than 125 000 metric tons from 95 thousand metric tons at present. Products manufactured include high molecular weight polyethylene glycols (PEGs), alcohol ethoxylates, sodium isethionates and ethoxylated specialties.

The new plant will go online in mid-2015.

“Ethoxylated products including polyethylene glycols are a cornerstone of our growth strategy, especially for the fast growing markets in the Americas with their greater demand for personal and home care products,” said Michael Willome, head of the business unit ICS.
