The commercial launch comes after the project started last month to produce and sell primary quantities of fuel oil and supply it to local power stations.
The centerpiece of the expansion will be a new world-scale, low-carbon footprint steam cracker to supply feedstocks for the various downstream production units.
Obsolescence is one of the most detrimental and worrisome issues in manufacturing units. This is predominantly because of rapid advancements in technology.
The finalized deal also includes an agreement for the long-term supply of attapulgite-based products to BASF. The transaction will improve the EBITDA margin profile of Clariant’s Business Area Natural Resources while supporting the company’s path towards reaching its 2025 targets.

<em>Hydrocarbon Processing</em>, the downstream processing sector’s leading technical publication for 100 yr, has announced the finalists for its sixth annual <em>HP</em> Awards, which celebrate innovative technologies and people that have been instrumental in improving facility operations over the past year.
Strike action and unplanned maintenance has taken offline more than 60% of France's refining capacity - or 740,000 bpd - forcing the country to import more when global supply uncertainty has increased the cost.

One hundred years ago, a group of individuals saw a need to disseminate the latest technologies and know-how to improve refining operations, safety, management and profitability. At the time, World War 1 had ended roughly 4 yr prior, and global gasoline demand expanded immensely. In turn, new refining capacity was being built around the world to increase production to satisfy burgeoning demand. Simultaneously, new discoveries were being made to produce plastics, fertilizers and other petrochemical products.
