Capacity expansion for Stanyl

DSM Engineering Plastics has announced two further capacity increases for its range of Stanyl polyamide products. The first of these capacity increases is a debottlenecking project at the Stanyl polymer production plant in Geleen. This project, which has already been announced, is expected to be completed in Q4 2004 and will yield an additional 20% capacity. At the same time engineering has started for a second Stanyl production plant, able to deliver up to 100% additional capacity, for start-up in the second half of 2007. The preferred location for this plant is Geleen, integrating it with the existing plant. However, an alternative site in China is being evaluated. A final decision for the investment and the location of this plant will be made in the latter half of 2005. Debottlenecking of the current DAB (DiAminoButane) plant in Geleen will provide the required additional raw material – which can be shipped to the new Stanyl 2 plant, wherever it will be built.
