Showa Denko plans increasing nitrous oxide capacity

TOKYO, JAPAN: Showa Denko (SDK) will increase its capacity for supplying high-purity nitrous oxide (N2O), a specialty gas for semiconductor production, by cooperating with Dooam Industrial (Dooam), of South Korea. SDK and Dooam have concluded a work commissioning agreement concerning the production of high-purity N2O. The two companies have also agreed to jointly construct a purification facility within the premises of Dooam’s plant near Seoul.

The purification facility, with the capacity of 600 tonne per year, is scheduled for completion by the end of 2014, and commercial shipments will start in 2015. As SDK is now operating a 1,200 tonne per year plant at Kawasaki, Japan, SDK’s total high-purity N2O supply capacity, after the completion of the new facility, will increase to 1,800 tonne per year.
