LONDON (ICIS)--US-based flame retardants firm FRX Polymers is building a plant in Antwerp, Belgium, a chemicals engineering firm said on Wednesday.
Germany’s Uhde Inventa-Fischer, which won a turnkey contract for the project, said that the plant will be the world’s first commercial-scale facility for the production of Nofia, a flame-retarding polyphosphonate (PPhos) polymer.
The plant will use FRX Polymers’ proprietary polycondensation process.
Uhde added that it has worked closely with FRX on the development of flame-retardant specialty polymers.
Details about costs, capacities or timelines for completion and start-up were not disclosed.
