Clariant expands its Tonsil bleaching earths production capacities in Mexico.

MUTTENZ, GERMANY: Clariant AG said that it is increasing production capacity for Tonsil bleaching earths and Tonsil coarse optimized (CO) grades at its Puebla site in Mexico by 30 percent. The additional capacity comes on stream as of April, concluding two years of work of an investment in the mid single-digit million range in Swiss francs to expand the production capabilities of Clariant's newest Tonsil production line at Puebla.

Puebla is the second biggest site for bleaching earth production of the business unit functional minerals. “This latest expansion will enable us to respond to new market opportunities being created by rising demand in both North and South America,” said Hariolf Kottmann, CEO, Clariant.

“Following continuous success of bleaching earth and mineral absorbents business in the Americas, this investment further strengthens our ability to be a key supplier for the edible oil industry and reinforces our commitment to support market development and growth by our customers in this important segment,” said Sven Schultheis, head of business unit, functional minerals, Clariant.

Today a considerable share of edible oil produced globally is treated with Tonsil bleaching earths. They set the gold standard in efficient and sustainable edible oil purification through the use of natural resources, the efficient removal of impurities from all kinds of oils, and minimizing waste throughout the entire process. The highly activated Tonsil (CO) grades offer customers the highest level of versatility and effectiveness in the treatment of petrochemical streams like aromatics and jetfuel.
