Chemtura sees demand for petroleum additives

PHILADELPHIA, US: Chemtura Corporation has announced the pending completion of the next stage of its multi-stage capacity increase plan for its line of High Viscosity Synton 40 and Synton 100 Polyalphaolefin (PAO) products at its facility in Elmira, Ontario, Canada. The debottlenecking process equipment will be completely operational in the second quarter of 2011, with some of the increased capacity coming by the end of the first quarter.


In addition, Chemtura has announced it will increase production of its Naugalube 438L alkylated diphenylamine (ADPA) liquid antioxidant product in both its Latina, Italy and Elmira, Ontario, Canada facilities. The increased capacity will be available by the end of the first quarter of 2011. These investments come on top of the recently announced new production facility for its Naugalube 403 liquid antioxidant in Rio Claro, Brazil.


“Synton PAO and Naugalube 438L are important products for our petroleum additives business and we are committed to invest to increase supply given the growing demands for these technologies on a global basis. Additional investments will be made in accordance with demand,” noted Dr Sean O’Connor, President-Petroleum Additives, Chemtura.
