Arkema to begin production of new bio-factory in Singapore

Moving onto facility news, and advanced materials firm Arkema has confirmed it is on track to begin production at its new plant on Jurong Island, Singapore, in the first half of next year. 

The company claims that, when complete, the site will be the largest integrated bio-factory in the world dedicated to high-performance polymers. Arkema will begin production of its flagship bio-based high-performance Rilsan PA11 polymer at the new plant in 2022, for which production will reportedly be 100 percent derived from renewable castor beans. 

The company has invested a total of $545 million in the region, having successfully placed its first green bond in October for a total of $363 million to finance the plant, which will enable a 50 percent increase in Arkema’s global PA11 capacity.

“We are excited to maintain the momentum and speed of construction,” said Erwoan Pezron, Senior Vice President, High Performance Polymers at Arkema. “After facing early challenges due to the global pandemic, we are operating at full strength and are now entering the peak construction phase with an estimated 2,000 workers on-site during the summer months.”
