Solvay, worldwide leader in Diphenols and derivatives, has recently announced a capacity extension project for hydroquinone (HQ), catechol (PC) and para-methoxyphenol (MEHQ or PMP) at its Zhenjiang site, China.
From this innovative and environmentally friendly new capacity, Solvay will continue to serve the market growth in India and Asia. This expansion is scheduled to be operational in 2018.
“From this hydroquinone and catechol competitive platform, Solvay intends to grow in butyl hydroxyl anisole (BHA) and tertio butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ) Diphenol derivatives used as food and feed antioxidants” revealed Jacques Guglielmi, Asia VP & General Manager at Solvay Aroma Performance.
For this purpose, Solvay has already invested and successfully started up a new high quality BHA production in France since November 2015 and will start a new technology TBHQ production in India in July 2016.
Based on its strong and sustainable worldwide Diphenols & derivatives expertise, Solvay also recently started a new Vanillin plant in China, fully FSSC 22000 food certified along the integrated production from Catechol to Vanillin. “Solvay is determined to reinforce its position in India by bringing the highest level of food safety for the benefit of Indian consumers,” affirmed Mukesh Malhotra, Solvay’s India Country Manager.
India is a strategic market where Solvay will continue to consider every next growth opportunity.
