June 27, 2011

The Emulsion Polymers business of Celanese Corp. has formally dedicated its expanded vinyl acetate/ethylene (VAE) unit in Nanjing, China. The expansion, which doubles the original capacity of the VAE unit, came online in the second quarter.

“This VAE unit expansion is a reflection of Celanese’s commitment to the further development of vinyl-based emulsion solutions spanning a broad range of end-use applications,” said Phillip McDivitt, general manager. “Today, we are servicing the needs of our customers with our differentiated product portfolio through two manufacturing units.”

“Celanese has shown a strong commitment to China and Asia with its continued investments here in Nanjing and across the region,” said Josh Cheng, president of Celanese China. “There are now eight units here at the Celanese Nanjing Chemical Complex and more are planned at this facility, which is already Celanese’s largest complex in the world.”
