Rockwood’s business unit opens butyllithium operation in India


PRINCETON, US: Chemetall Lithium India Pvt Ltd, a business unit of Rockwood Holdings Inc, has inaugurated a new butyllithium operation in Gujarat, India. The new site is located in the Dahej special economic zone and will function as the main platform for the supply of Chemetall’s lithium products to India and other markets in the region.

The new facility will ensure reliable supply of high quality butyllithium - widely used as initiator for anionic polymerization and as a base in organic, pharmaceutical or agrochemical syntheses. In addition to butyllithium operations, the facility will also be expanded to store and sell other specialty chemicals manufactured by Chemetall. The site will simplify logistics, reduce lead time and boost Chemetall’s presence locally in India and the region.

Chemetall recently introduced several successful new products into the Indian market. Currently, Chemetall supplies all major producers of active pharmaceutical ingredients as well as numerous generic drug manufacturers. Chemetall works closely together with research departments as well as with contract research organizations (CROs).
