HOUSTON (ICIS)--US Ecolab on Thursday said its water chemicals company, Nalco, will construct an $18.7m (€14.4m) dry polymer plant in Garyville, Louisiana, it said on Thursday.
The plant should be completed late this year. It will produce dry polymer products for use in removing contaminants from wastewater, increasing production efficiency in the paper industry and recovering minerals in the mining industry, Ecolab said.
The company did not release capacity information.
Nalco opened the Garyville complex in 1970. It produces industrial water treatment products, such as corrosion and scale inhibitors, used in boilers and cooling towers; wastewater treatment products; and process chemicals used in the papermaking, mining, petroleum, steel, power generation, food and beverage, metalworking and aluminium refining industries.
