AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: Nouryon has made a series of investments at its metal alkyls plant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands to improve efficiency and increase capacity. The projects will enable the company to continue meeting growing demand from customers in the polymer industry and improve supply reliability in Europe.

The most recent investment includes automating raw material handling, improving overall efficiency and safety at the site by avoiding potential exposure risks. This project also allows for material to be supplied in bulk, which reduces transportation costs. 

“The Rotterdam plant has increased production capacity by more than 40 percent in the last three years, and this latest investment series positions us for sustained growth. It will enable us to move greater volumes with improved reliability and consistency to our customers,” said Jeroen Jungschlager, Rotterdam Plant Manager.

“Projects such as these reflect our strategy of accelerating growth through operational excellence and strategic investments tailored to the needs of our customers,” added Johan Landfors, Managing Director Polymer Chemistry at Nouryon.
