Arkema to modernize acrylic acid plant
Arkema is spending $90 million on upgrades to its acrylic acid complex in Clear Lake, Texas. The company is replacing two aging reactors, each with 45,000 metric tons of annual capacity, with a single 90,000-metric-ton train. The project will be completed by mid-2019. Arkema calls itself the second-largest acrylic acid maker in North America, after BASF.
