SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Clariant plans to expand its production capacity for Houdry dehydrogenation catalysts in the US by September 2013, the Switzerland-based specialty chemicals firm said on Monday.
It intends to invest “double-digit million Swiss francs” to debottleneck its production facility in Louiseville, the company said in a statement.
Houdry dehydrogenation catalysts are used in the petrochemical industry to produce C3- and C4-olefins from light paraffins (including butadiene) using the proprietary Catofin and Catadiene processes of Lummus Technology.
