Solvay plans reducing acetate tow capacity in Germany, Brazil

FREIBURG, GERMANY: Solvay Acetow will streamline its acetate tow capacity to enhance production efficiency and returns, closing two of its smaller, less competitive workshops in Germany and in Brazil. These two Rhodia Filter Tow workshops in Solvay’s plant in Freiburg, Germany and in Santo André, Brazil, no longer meet Solvay’s demanding energy-saving targets and will be closed by the end of 2014.

As part of Solvay’s dynamic management of assets and drive for operational excellence, the Group focuses on enhancing the high-quality standards of its modern energy-efficient sites in Germany, Brazil and Russia, thereby securing its global competitiveness.
