Showa Denko to increase high-purity ammonia capacity at 3 sites

TOKYO, JAPAN: Showa Denko K K (SDK) will increase its production capacity for high-purity ammonia to meet growing demand from the electronics industry.  Specifically, production capacities at three sites in Japan, Taiwan and China - will be increased from the current levels of 1,000 tonne/y, 1,500 tonne/y and 500 tonne/y; to 1,500 tonne/y, 2,500 tonne/y and 1,000 tonne/y, respectively, by the end of 2011.

The capacity increase will be carried out through expansions of filling/storage facilities and improvement in production efficiency. As a result, the group’s total high-purity ammonia production capacity will increase from 3,000 tonne/y to 5,000 tonne/y.

Anticipating further growth in the electronics market in East Asian countries and to ensure stable supply of high-purity ammonia, SDK has decided to increase production capacities. The business of high-purity ammonia and other high-purity gases (for semiconductor/display production) are “growth” focus segments for the company. 

The capacity increase will take place at its Kawasaki City plant in Japan, Tainan City plant in Taiwan and Quzhou, Zhejiang Province in China.
