Chemicals company Nouryon has invested in its metal alkyls plant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands to improve efficiency and increase capacity.

Nouryon says that the investments will enable the company to meet 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.

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