Wacker Starts China's Largest Dispersible Polymer Powder Plant


German chemical company Wacker has started its new dispersible powder and vinyl acetate ethylene dispersion plant in Nanjing, China.

The 30,000mt/y dispersible powder plant spread over 100,000m² is the largest of its kind in China, Wacker said.

The fully integrated production complex, built at an initial investment of more than €50m, will serve the entire product line from vinyl acetate ethylene dispersions to dispersible powders.

The project, located in the Nanjing Chemical Industrial Park, aims to provide a consistent supply of Vinnapas polymer-powder to the company's customers in the Asia-Pacific region.
