Chemtura expands AXION MAO capacity at Bergkamen site

BERGKAMEN, GERMANY: Chemtura Organometallics GmbH, a subsidiary of Chemtura Corporation, plans to start its world-scale expansion project for AXION MAO (methylaluminoxane) at its Bergkamen, Germany manufacturing facility. The additional AXION MAO manufacturing capacity came on-stream in July, as scheduled. “This is another important milestone in executing Chemtura Organometallics’ growth strategy by servicing our customers with essential polymerization co-catalysts,” said Dr Ulrich Stewen, President, Chemtura Organometallics.

“This expansion, as well as the ongoing enhancements of our global supply chain capabilities, will further increase the security of supply for our customers’ high-growth engineered-polymer projects. The AXION MAO expansion is fully backwards integrated based on our onsite trimethylaluminum (TMA) production. These critical TMA feedstocks, as well as our container fleet, are continuously being adjusted to satisfy the growing market demand,” added Stewen.
