Arkema to Invest €300 million in biosourced polyamide 11 chain in Asia

Posted on : 23 Apr, 2018

 
Arkema has announced new investments of some €300 million in biosourced polyamide 11 chain in Asia, in a bid to increase its production capacities in the region.
 
The new investments that will be made over a period of five years will increase Arkema’s polyamide 11 global production capacities by 50 percent. 
 
The investments include a world-scale plant dedicated to producing Rilsan® PA11 biosourced polyamide from castor oil. The new facility, expected to come on stream in late 2021, will be producing amino 11 monomer as well as its polymer, Rilsan® PA11. The new plant will enable Arkema to increase its Rilsan® PA11 (powder and granule) production capacity by 50% while its global production capacities for Pebax® (in particular Pebax® RNew of which amino 11 is a key component) will also increase by 50%.
 
Rilsan® PA11 is the only high performance 100% biosourced polyamide that qualifies for the most exacting applications particularly for electronics, 3D-printing and automotive markets, where it serves as a metal substitute.
 
The new investments shows Arkema’s commitment to meet demand for biosourced solutions in Asia and address challenges of lightweighting and design of materials.
