Muttenz/Switzerland – Clariant continues to boost the supply of high-quality activated bleaching earths to the edible oil and biofuel markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with additional capacity now on stream in Yuncos, Spain, and an extended portfolio of advanced purification products for local customers.

Anil Sönmez, Head of Purification and Functional Adsorbents EMEA at Clariant, comments: “Our investment in Yuncos, Spain enables us to offer more high quality purification products and on-hand expertise, which customers in the local edible oil and biofuels market require to optimise their products. Importantly, it complements our investments over the last three years in new and existing sites in France, Germany and Turkey, which together puts us in a unique position to respond quickly and deliver the supply flexibility and solutions our customers need to meet changing market requirements.”

The move secures closer-at-hand supply, shorter lead times and better service not only for Tonsil customers in Spain. It complements Clariant’s network of production plants located in Europe, which delivers a unique level of supply and service flexibility to customers in EMEA.
