AkzoNobel completes $10-M sulfur derivatives plant in US

AkzoNobel’s Specialty Chemicals business has completed a $10-million investment at its LeMoyne, AL, sulfur derivatives plant. The investment includes a 20,000-dry-tonne expansion for the production of sodium hydrosulfide (NaSH) which the company supplies to customers in the paper, leather tanning, mining and specialty polymers segments.

The LeMoyne facility employs unique AkzoNobel technology which provides NaSH at lower impurity levels and higher concentrations than competing processes providing a significant sustainability benefit for customers, says the company.

AkzoNobel says it is the only company to produce a high-strength, high-purity NaSH at 60% concentration which means the product qualifies as an eco-premium solution offering advantages in terms of energy efficiency, emissions and waste water.
