The equal joint venture between Mitsubishi Chemical and Samyang plans to build a 20,000 cubic metre/year IER facility at Gunsan-city. The plant is scheduled to start production in May 2015.
The companies expect to invest about yen (Y) 8.1bn ($81m) in the plant, Mitsubishi said.
IERs are used in industrial water treatment at power plants and chemical plants, as well as in the purification of amino acids, the manufacture of ultrapure water, and in applications in the sugar refining and the food and pharmaceutical industries.
