2 Feb 2023 - News

Nouryon today announced the expansion of the company’s Application Development Centers in Deventer, the Netherlands and Chattanooga, Tennessee, US, to offer advanced technical service capabilities dedicated to cleaning in Europe and North America. The expansion accelerates meaningful and sustainable innovation to meet the evolving needs of the cleaning market, while supporting the company’s existing global network of Application Development Centers.

Nouryon’s advanced technical service capabilities offer advanced performance-in-use testing for hard surface cleaning, dishwashing, and laundry applications, with the ability to evaluate processes under household, industrial, and institutional conditions. These capabilities will also support advanced analytical competencies, ecotoxicity development, and regulatory compliance.

“Collaboration with our customers is critical for accelerating the development of novel, high-efficiency, and more sustainable cleaning solutions,” said Suzanne Carroll, Senior Vice President of Nouryon’s Home and Personal Care Business. “Our investment marks an expansion in resources, equipment, and technical competency allowing us to enhance our essential solutions and deliver more robust value to our customers.”

Nouryon offers a portfolio of innovative, high-performance sustainable surfactants, hybrid polymers and solutions developed to address major cleaning formulation challenges and is a leading producer of high-performing, biodegradable chelates worldwide.

“We are excited to expand our technical capabilities to enable our teams to work even more closely with our global customers, furthering the development of collaborations that will advance sustainable innovation,” said Brad Pearson, Nouryon Business Director for Cleaning Goods.

In 2022, Nouryon also announced that it had commissioned a biodegradable chelates production facility in the Netherlands to meet growing consumer demand for eco-friendly auto dishwashing and liquid laundry products, complementing the company’s existing plants in Ningbo, China and Lima, Ohio, US.

Nouryon has application development centers for the cleaning end-market in Deventer, the Netherlands, Stenungsund, Sweden, as well as in Bridgewater, New Jersey and Chattanooga, Tennessee, US.

Nouryon was awarded an EcoVadis Platinum rating for its sustainability performance in 2022.
