 Società Chimica Bussi investing in additional manufacturing capacity for Eureco TM RP103 granules developed by Itaconix

 

Itaconix, a leading innovator in sustainable performance polymers, is pleased to announce that Società Chimica Bussi S.p.A. ("SCB") has decided to invest in facilities for the production of the new granular grade EurecoTM RP103 ("RP103"), a product developed by Itaconix and licensed to Solvay SA ("Solvay"). Solvay sold its Bussi site to SCB in 2016, including the manufacturing facility for RP103, but maintains its role of exclusive distributor of EurecoTM products worldwide, except in Italy.

SCB has already started a series of investments on the site to ensure its sustainability and growth, as well as creating synergies with its current portfolio of activities. Building on the actions initiated by Solvay and as a result of growing commercial interest, SCB has decided to support the availability of EurecoTM products in granular form and has prioritised the investment at the Bussi plant in Italy.

 

RP103, is based on 6-phthalimido-peroxyhexanoic acid (PAP), which is already well-known among the consumer and professional detergents markets for its effectiveness in removing stubborn stains, bleaching in compact product formulations, and the elimination of malodour, germs, bacteria and fungi on both textiles and hard surfaces.

 

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of EU Regulation 596/2014.
