DALLAS, US: Celanese Corporation received government approvals necessary to proceed with its previously announced plans to modify and enhance its existing integrated acetyl facility at the Nanjing Chemical Industrial Park to produce ethanol for industrial uses. The new facility is expected to start by mid-2013. Based upon continued advancements to its TCX ethanol process technology, the company now expects to have approximately 30 to 40 per cent additional ethanol production capacity than the originally announced 200,000 tonne with no increase in the capital investment for the modification and enhancement.

“The company’s continued advancements to the technology allow us to produce 30 to 40 per cent more capacity from this unit than originally announced. Additionally, our technology advancement unit in Clear Lake, Texas, which is scheduled to be completed in mid-2012, will provide further enhancements to our TCX ethanol process technology,” said David Weidman, Chairman and CEO, Celanese.
