AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals (the Netherlands) recently announced that is has broken ground on a project to expand production capacity and update its organic peroxides facility in Mahad, India.

The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The company also noted that it is investing in a monochloroacetic acid project due to start production in 2019.

“This is the latest in a series of organic peroxide investments to better serve our customers by upgrading technologies and increasing production capacity,” says Johan Landfors, member of the Executive Committee responsible for Polymer Chemicals.

“This expansion will allow us to build on our strong presence in numerous organic peroxide market segments, particularly in PVC, acrylics and thermoset resins.”

One of the company’s previous investments came in January, when it announced that it was investing more than 12 million euros to expand a facility in Los Reyes, Mexico. Specifically, that facility aimed to make Perkadox CH-50 organic peroxides, which are sold primarily in the thermoset resin market.

“We have a growing portfolio of customers, so continued investment to increase production capability at Los Reyes is critical to ensure we continue to meet demand while positioning ourselves for sustainable growth,” Landfors said at the time.
