Rhodia to build three new plants in Zhenjiang, China


ZHENJIANG, CHINA: Rhodia announced three new production units at its Zhenjiang site for its Novecare’s specialty surfactants and polymers and Aroma Performance’s Guaiacol and isobornyl cyclohexanol (IBCH) products. The extended production capacities will enable Rhodia to meet the growing demand from local customers and will increase its service level in terms of delivery and response time.

The most advanced production technologies applied in Zhenjiang will significantly reduce the waste water, salt production and air emissions, Rhodia informed.

“After acquiring Jiangsu Feixiang Chemicals in 2010, the Asia-Pacific business represents now one third of Novecare’s sales. China is definitely the most important country to drive our growth in this region. This new plant will complete our manufacturing footprint in the country and give us additional competitive advantages,” commented Dr Chen Pu, VP/General Manager Asia-Pacific, Rhodia Novecare.  

“We transferred our IBCH production, the best substitution to natural sandalwood oil that contributes to prevention of over-exploitation of sandalwood resources,” said Olivier Champault, VP and Asia-Pacific General Manager, Rhodia Aroma Performance.
