Showa Denko, UOP JV completes construction of high silica zeolite plant in Japan

TOKYO, JAPAN: Union Showa (USKK), a joint venture between Showa Denko (SDK) and UOP LLC (UOP), has completed the construction of a new high silica zeolite plant within the premises of SDK’s Higashinagahara Plant in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan and will start operation of the new plant in this December.

High silica zeolite has been in tight supply, reflecting a growing demand on a global scale. In Japan and other Asian countries, in particular, demand is expected to grow further, reflecting increased awareness of the need for environmental protection and desire to achieve a higher standard of living. On the other hand, USKK has so far been importing high silica zeolite from UOP’s plant in Mobile, Alabama, US, for sale in the Japanese market. As a part of the UOP Group’s global strategy to ensure stable supply of high silica zeolite to customers in Asia including Japan, develop new applications quickly, and improve technical services, USKK recently decided to newly establish in Japan the second high silica zeolite plant of the UOP Group.
