Solvay to build alkoxylation facility in Singapore

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Solvay will build a large-scale alkoxylation facility in Singapore which is expected to start operations by 2015 and will serve the fast-growing Asian market in home & personal care, coatings, industrial, agrochemicals and oil & gas. The facility will be connected to Shell’s new high purity ethylene oxide (HPEO) unit located in the world-class, integrated petrochemical hub of Jurong Island. Through the alkoxylation process key monomers are produced that serve downstream surfactant development and manufacturing.

“This project is part of our aggressive growth strategy in Asia and solidifies our specialty surfactant production. In addition to greatly expanding our alkoxylation footprint in Asia, the facility demonstrates Novecare’s ambition to be the world leader in delivering innovative surfactant solutions to our customers on a global basis,” said Emmanuel Butstraen, President, Solvay Novecare.
