As part of the arrangement, any surplus CS2 volumes produced by the plant can be marketed by Nouryon, helping the company better serve its customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
CS2 plays an essential role in many industrial processes. Besides being used in fiber production for products ranging from textiles to tea bags, it is also used in agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and mining.
Nouryon’s CS2 technology allows high production capacity in a single, cost-effective continuous process. Nouryon has its own CS2 production in Argentina, Germany, and the US, and this deal marks the company’s third license agreement.
“Since the technology was implemented, the manufacturer’s plant has been confirmed to produce even better than forecasted results,” said Ignacio Garin, General Manager Sulfur Derivatives at Nouryon. “We are very pleased to see that our technology and expertise can help our partners achieve growth.”
Egbert Henstra, Managing Director Ethylene and Sulfur Derivatives at Nouryon, added: “Collaborations like these allow us to build a global CS2 supply network and simplify our logistics, as well as improve our customer service and better meet growing demand for CS2 across Asia-Pacific.”
Nouryon recently realized another CS2 milestone with a commercial delivery to a Chinese customer – the first time that CS2 was imported there.
