Arkema is expanding its polyvinylidene fluoride plant in Calvert City, Ky., by 20%. The polymers are used in solar panels, water filtration, chemical processing equipment, and high-performance cables. The company completed an expansion in Changshu, China, earlier this year. It expects to finish the U.S. expansion next year.
