Cognis Polymers, Coatings & Inks (PCI) business has consolidated the European production of its DSX range of environmentally friendly high-performance rheology additives at its site in Castellbisbal, Spain, near Barcelona. The production and service center at Castellbisbal will reportedly complement the company's existing production facilities in the U.S. and will mainly serve the European market, where demand for high-quality environmentally friendly coatings is rising quickly.
As part of the process, a new reactor has been built, so that the Spanish site is now able to produce a wider range and greater volume of rheology additives than was previously the case. By bringing together its technical expertise for functional coatings and production at a single location and by focusing on product groups rather than individual products, the PCI business unit aims to streamline European production processes and further improve supply chain efficiency.
