Rhodia to increase hydroquinone capacity in China

July 13, 2011

Rhodia has announced plans to increase its worldwide production capacity of hydroquinone by 20 percent, especially at Rhodia Zhenjiang unit in China by 2012. The global demand for hydroquinone is driven by high, sustained growth of certain markets such as superabsorbent polymers, paint, construction, automotive or electronics. This significant development project illustrates Rhodia’s commitment to underpin the hydroquinone market’s growth, especially in Asia, while consolidating its strengths, namely proximity, quality and security of supply to its customers via its three production units throughout the world. In addition to its comprehensive range of stabilizers for monomers, Rhodia provides high-quality technical support, thanks in particular to its international expertise laboratory and its global technical support teams.
