LONDON (ICIS)--Arkema has officially started up its new 60,000 tonne/year emulsion polymers facility in Changshu, China, the France-based international chemicals producer said on Friday.

The $30m (€22m) plant, which is part of Arkema’s coating resins business unit, will supply customers in the Asia Pacific region with waterborne emulsion polymers for coatings and adhesives applications.

Last month, Arkema opened a new research and development (R&D) centre at Changshu.

“The combination of our new plant and R&D centre in one location in China sets Arkema apart from other suppliers, and significantly enhances our ability to serve our customers with local expertise and capabilities,” said Wilson Foo, Asia Pacific president for Arkema’s coating resins business.
