AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: Nouryon said that it will double its surfactants plant capacity in Stenungsund, Sweden. This will support the growth of several existing products as well as new sustainable technologies for markets including oil and gas, lubricants and fuels, and asphalt.

The €12-million expansion and upgrade project include the installation of a new reactor and is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2021.

The additional capacity will allow Nouryon to expand production of several innovative technologies for the oil and gas market. These include Armohib CI-5150, a corrosion inhibitor that meets the industry’s most stringent environmental requirements, as well as a new range of biodegradable demulsifiers that will give oil and gas producers a more sustainable option to separate crude oil from natural gas and water.

The expansion also allows Nouryon to increase output of products including Berol R648NG, a unique biodegradable surfactant used as a degreaser by customers in the cleaning market. It will also produce surfactants used in the lubricants and fuels and asphalt markets. 

“We started producing surfactants at our Stenungsund site in 1917. Over the past 102 years, the facility has proven to be key to our growth and the investment to double capacity there makes good business sense. We are now well positioned to meet the growing demand from our customers for more sustainable products,” said Charlie Shaver, CEO, Nouryon.
