Chemours Breaks Ground for World’s First Full-Scale Production of HFO-1336mzz

The Chemours Company announced that, along with its partner Changshu 3F Zhonghao, it has broken ground on the world’s first full-scale production facility for HFO-1336mzz in Changshu, Jiangsu Province, China. This site, expected to begin production mid-year 2017, will provide increased capacity of low global warming potential (GWP) foam expansion agents and refrigerants.

Chemours is actively developing several new refrigerant fluids based on HFO-1336mzz technology for a variety of applications, including traditional chiller systems and the emerging arena of waste heat recovery using technologies such as high temperature heat pumps and organic rankine cycles. These fluids are showing promising results in customer lab and field trials.

“Breaking ground for our new HFO-1336mzz production facility paves the way for Chemours to add still more capacity to our industry-leading supply of products based on HFO technology,” said Thierry F.J. Vanlancker, president, Chemours Fluoroproducts. “The Changshu facility shows our continued commitment to meeting the needs of our customers for high performance, environmentally friendly solutions that enable them to meet growing regulatory and sustainability demands.”

Chemours has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to offer customers new products with no ozone depletion and low global warming potential. The company and its suppliers have plans to invest hundreds of millions more in the next five years to bring online additional capacity of these more sustainable, high-performance products that serve a wide range of applications.
