AMSTERDAM — Specialty chemicals provider Nouryon has signed a five-year license agreement with Shaanxi Beiyuan Chemical Group Co. Ltd. (Beiyuan), a leading producer of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in China. Under the agreement, Nouryon will license its Continuous Initiator Dosing (CiD) technology to Beiyuan, and will supply its Trigonox® 187 proprietary CiD initiator, which will be produced at Nouryon’s new world-class site in Tianjin, China. The partnership with Beiyuan builds on Nouryon’s successful track record of supplying CiD technology to customers throughout EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) and the Americas.

“As the largest global producer of polymerization initiators for PVC, Nouryon is excited to partner with Beiyuan and extend our technology to China,” said Alain Rynwalt, Vice President Polymer Specialties at Nouryon. “Nouryon’s patented CiD technology will allow Beiyuan to increase reactor output, while improving productivity and energy consumption, product quality and operational safety.”

“With this agreement, we look forward to advancing the PVC market and creating more value in China,” said Yancai Liu, General Manager at Beiyuan. “By automating the handling of polymerization initiators, PVC production will be a safer and more efficient process with less energy usage. We believe our partnership with Nouryon will keep us at the forefront of the industry and will help us to address increasingly stringent environmental and safety regulations,” said Liu.
