Clariant, a leader in specialty chemicals, has announced the relocation of its Air Purification catalyst production from Needham, Massachusetts to Louisville, Kentucky.
Sustainability is a core element of Clariant's business strategy, and Clariant is committed to creating products that can help our environment. Through its air purification market segment, which focuses on reducing or eliminating harmful industrial emissions, Clariant has products that mitigate the effects of pollutants: for example, the installed volume of its line of EnviCat®-N2O catalysts is reducing N2O to the same extent as what 4 million automobiles would emit in CO2 annually.
In order to strengthen its position in the market, Clariant is relocating its air urification catalyst production from Needham, Massachusetts to Louisville, Kentucky and will focus on developing and innovating new solutions in the air purification catalyst business. As part of the expansion of its Louisville facility, Clariant is focusing its efforts to bring its research and development efforts closer to manufacturing. This is part of the long term plan to make Louisville a centre of catalyst excellence.
This move improves Clariant's ability to meet customer needs, while also taking advantage of economies of services and scope to better serve its customers. Additionally, the new move creates synergies that will allow Clariant to provide its customers ease of access to catalyst solutions from air purification catalysts to zeolite powder based technologies and process catalysts.
Production of air purification catalysts in Louisville began in October 2015.
