Celanese has announced the opening of its Houston Technology Center (HTC) for the emulsion polymers and polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) businesses. The 31,200-square-foot facility, which will house both the R&D and technical services groups, includes both analytical and application testing laboratories for a range of industrial and consumer end-use products. The HTC is the newest addition to the businesses’ technology network, with additional locations in Frankfurt, Germany, and Shanghai, China. The HTC is also a result of the revitalization of the businesses’ technology group, which was announced last year.
