Nouryon recently announced that it has made a series of investments at its metal alkyls plant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to improve efficiency and increase capacity. The company expects that the projects will enable it to continue meeting growing demand from customers in the polymer industry and improve supply reliability in Europe. 

“The Rotterdam plant has increased production capacity by more than 40% in the last three years, and this latest investment series positions us for sustained growth,” said Jeroen Jungschlager, Rotterdam plant manager. “It will enable us to move greater volumes with improved reliability and consistency to our customers.”

The most recent investment includes automating raw material handling and improving overall efficiency and safety at the site by avoiding potential exposure risks. This project also allows for material to be supplied in bulk, which reduces transportation costs.

“Projects such as these reflect our strategy of accelerating growth through operational excellence and strategic investments tailored to the needs of our customers,” said Johan Landfors, managing director for Polymer Chemistry.
