Solvay Builds New Polymer Unit In India, Expands Capacity In U.S.

Oct. 24, 2017
Solvay is constructing a new production unit, dedicated to polyethersulfone in Panoli, India and increasing capacity in the U.S. at Solvay’s polymer and monomer units in Ohio and Georgia.

Solvay is expanding its global production capacity in sulfone polymers in India and the United States to address demand for the high-performance thermoplastic material from the medical and water treatment industries, according to the company. As part of Solvay’s earlier announced plan to lift sulfone polymers capacity by more than 35% in the next five years, Solvay is constructing a new production unit, dedicated to polyethersulfone (PESU) in Panoli, India. Capacity increases are also occurring in the U.S. at Solvay’s polymer and monomer units in Marietta, Ohio and Augusta, Georgia via investment and process optimizations. 

Construction of the new unit in Panoli is underway and production should reportedly reach full capacity mid 2019.
