DuPont invests $ 150 million to expand ethylene copolymers capacity

DORDRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS: DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers will increase capacity at its site at Dordrecht, Netherlands, to meet strong demand for specialty copolymers, Bynel adhesive resins, Fusabond modifier resins and Appeel lidding sealants used in packaging, construction and industrial markets. The expansion enhances the company’s global network of manufacturing capabilities which includes sites in the North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.


These specialty copolymers will be available from Dordrecht starting July 2011.  According to DuPont, the investment enables improved supply reliability to all regions and another platform for new products and technology development.


“Investing to increase capacity accelerates DuPont’s ability to respond to rapidly growing demand worldwide, particularly in Central Europe and Asia. It also supports our customers’ drive for more sustainable solutions,” said Carolann Haznedar, Global Business Director, Ethylene Copolymers, DuPont.


DuPont’s broad product portfolio enables the company to serve diverse and changing needs and respond to top industry demands. Packaging professionals currently need solutions to improve package sustainability, reduce waste/cost and improve performance as the top issues facing the industry.
