ynthos SA plans building NdBR rubber plant in Brazil

EVRY, FRANCE: Synthos SA is planning to build a neodymium polybutadiene rubber (NdBR) plant in Triunfo Petrochemical Complex in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The company will build a modern production plant producing NdBR used to manufacture high-performance car and truck tires and various technical rubber products. The plant capacity will reach 80,000 tonne per year.

“Considering the growing demand for synthetic rubber in Brazil and other South American countries, we will not aim at replacing the local production, but try to substitute the import into the region,” said Tomasz Kalwat, CEO, Synthos SA.
