Total Cray Valley (TCV) recently announced that it has started construction on its new C4 chemical manufacturing plant in Carling, France. TCV reportedly will use the new plant to produce liquid polybutadiene. With the ability to produce several thousand tons of product per year, the plant expands the company’s global position in polybutadiene production, both in volume and range of functionality.
