Ashland Specialty Ingredients Completes Expansion of its Macon, Ga., Facility

Ashland Specialty Ingredients, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc. announced that it has completed a 13,000 square foot expansion of its Macon, Ga., facility and moved its Nuosept biocides production line to the new space. By moving Nuosept biocide production from Leaside, Ontario, to Macon, the company has increased production flexibility and efficiency. The production lines are now fully operational. The plant also has a pilot-sized, mini-mill to produce experimental batches. The mini-mill helps the company innovate and develop new biocides that can then be scaled up to production volumes. The mini-mill also enables technicians to look at variations in the manufacturing process and troubleshoot customers' production problems. The Macon location is suited for Nuosept biocides production, said Jerusik. The technicians were experienced in producing biocides, and the plant was already a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered site. It offers a logistical advantage as well.
