AkzoNobel further strengthens its global MCA position

08-Feb-2012 - Netherlands
AkzoNobel takes two further steps in strengthening its global position in the market of monochloroacetic acid (MCA). Recently it has commissioned its expanded Delfzijl MCA facility in the Netherlands, which now has a capacity exceeding 100,000 MT/year. In parallel, AkzoNobel is to further increase MCA production capacity at its Taixing site in China to also reach a level of 100,000 MT/year.
“These investments demonstrate our strong commitment to AkzoNobel’s sustainable growth strategy and underpin our strong commitment to serving the growing global MCA markets,” says Jürgen Baune, general manager of AkzoNobel’s MCA business. “The additional capacity will be used to grow with our existing customer base and further strengthen the competitiveness of AkzoNobel to compete via its world scale integrated MCA platforms being the largest MCA facilities in the world.  Our key focus will be to serve the increasing demand for high purity MCA in main end markets like agrochemicals, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), surfactants and thioglycolic acid.”
