LONDON (ICIS)--Haldor Topsoe has opened a large expansion of its catalysts plant in Frederikssund, Denmark, the Danish catalysts and technologies firm said in a statement released late on Monday.

Haldor said it invested more than €40m in the expansion which is focused on refining catalysts for ultra-low sulphur diesel fuel. Capacity details were not disclosed.

"The expansion at Frederikssund ties in closely with our growth strategy and is based on our projections for increased demand," said CEO Bjerne Clausen.

Clausen added that almost 40% of the world's total output of ultra-low sulphur diesel is produced using Topsoe technology.
