UOP invests $20 million for adsorbents and catalysts expansion

DES PLAINES, US: UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, will invest $20 million to expand its production facility in Mobile, Alabama, US, to produce adsorbents and catalysts. The investment will expand production of Honeywell’s UOP IONSIVTM Ion Exchange adsorbents, which remove radioactive material from liquid, and are currently being used in Japan in response to last year’s nuclear disaster. It will also support the production of new adsorbents and catalysts used by petrochemical producers and refiners. The expansion is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year.

“This investment helps us meet the demand for our newest advanced materials, as well as established products that are in demand by customers around the world. We continue to invest in new technologies that will help meet refiners and petrochemical producers’ needs for materials that offer more flexibility, increase production and lower cost,” said Mike Millard, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Catalyst, Adsorbents and Specialties business, UOP.
