Kuraray to Increase Resin Production
“EVAL resins have so many benefits over materials like glass, steel and other plastics that it’s not surprising how significantly demand has grown, particularly in innovative applications in barrier food packaging, environmental protection, and personal protection,” said George Avdey, president of the EVAL business unit.
Kuraray has manufacturing plants for EVAL resin located in Pasadena, TX; Okayama, Japan; and Antwerp, Belgium. Following the expansion, the company’s combined global capacity will reportedly be 180 million lbs (81,000 tons) per year.
