Once completed, the new facility is expected to produce 100,000 metric tonnes of acrylic acid per year. This move will enable the Group to increase its total global production capacity to 980,000 tonnes per year.

Indonesia – Nippon Shokubai Co., has recently announced to approve the investment plan at its subsidiary, Nippon Shokubai Indonesia (NSI) which involves building an Acrylic Acid (AA) plant with a capacity of 100,000 metric tonnes per year. AA, one of Nippon Shokubai’s core businesses, has shown steady growth of demand as a key material of superabsorbent polymer (SAP) and acrylate (AES) etc. In recent years, the demand and supply balance of AA is highly tight especially in Asia.

To accommodate the demand and fulfil its duty to supply products, Nippon Shokubai studied the further expansion of its AA business and as a result of the study, the company concluded to expand the capacity of NSI. This move was undertaken by keeping in mind NSI’s location in Asia and the expectation for synergistic effect with the existing plant.

Major Plant Engineering GROAB is a project database for international major plant engineering and construction. You can find more than 5500 projects within 13 categories. Learn more about GROAB and test the database.

With this new plant at NSI, Nippon Shokubai group’s global AA production capacity will be 980,000 tonnes per year (Japan 540,000 tonnes per year and overseas 440,000 tonnes per year).
