Arkema Makes Deal in Superabsorbents

Department: Business

Arkema will sell its superabsorbent polymers business to the Japanese firm Sumitomo Seika for an undisclosed amount. Arkema will then toll manufacture the polymers at its 15,000-metric-ton-per-year plant in Carling, France. Sumitomo Seika already operates superabsorbent polymers plants in Singapore and Japan with combined capacity of 140,000 metric tons. According to Arkema, the deal "offers a genuine opportunity to develop this activity and strengthen the Arkema Carling plant."
