Germany: Market Trend Clariant to Increase Capacity of Emission Control Catalysts
With an aim to meet the growing demand of emission control catalysts, Clariant Catalysts has increased production volume at its Heufeld plant in Germany by 100 %. The facility produces Envicat emission control catalysts, which are capable of eliminating up to 99% of harmful substances from industrial off-gases.
Munich/Germany – Clariant Catalysts is expanding and enhancing its capacity for emission control catalysts to meet growing global demand, particularly in China. The company just recently commenced operations at an additional, upgraded production facility in Heufeld, Germany, which features state-of-the-art production equipment exclusively dedicated to emission control catalysts.
Production capacity for the catalysts has been increased to enable a volume growth of 100 % compared to 2019. The site, which now includes two units, covering a combined area of 1500 sq m. The plant operates under rigorous quality controls, and is certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 50001 standards.
The catalysts are suitable for off-gas abatement in a diverse range of applications, from chemical production plants to stationary engines and turbines.
Stefan Heuser, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Clariant Catalysts, stated, “As governmental emission control standards are intensified around the world, our customers can rely on the ample supply of our innovative Envicat catalysts to effectively and cost-efficiently meet even the most stringent targets.”
