AkzoNobel's Partnership with Honda Motor Europe Extended to 2019

Honda Motor Europe has extended its partnership with AkzoNobel Performance Coatings, as one of two preferred suppliers of vehicle refinishes to Honda dealerships and approved bodyshops in Europe. The new five-year contract runs until March 2019 and will cover supply and support of AkzoNobel`s Sikkens and Lesonal brands.

AkzoNobel and Photanol to Develops Chemical Compounds

AkzoNobel and Photanol have teamed up to develop a process for harnessing the power of the sun to make chemicals. The two companies will work on creating sustainable technology which mimics the way plants use photosynthesis. The aim is to produce "green" chemical building blocks that will eventually replace raw materials AkzoNobel currently obtains from fossil-based production. The collaboration is focused on Photanol's existing proprietary technology, which uses light to directly convert CO2 from the air into predetermined raw materials such as acetic acid and butanol. The only by-product is oxygen. The two companies will start by developing a number of specific chemicals that are currently used by AkzoNobel's Specialty Chemicals Business Area. The partnership is intended to be a stepping stone for potential commercial production of fourth generation bio-based chemicals.

AkzoNobel Staff at Botlek Chlorine Plant Postpone Strike to September 8, 2014

AkzoNobel announced that has been postponed to September 8, 2014. That decision was made to secure a safe reduction of the production capacity, including for customers. A much part of the production at Membraam Elektrolyse Bedrijf (MEB) will be halted from September 8, 2014 to September 11, 2014 after the plant's management did not respond to an ultimatum given by the unions. They called for a 10% pay rise and a separate wage deal for MEB's 95 workers who still fall under AkzoNobel's collective labour agreement. The staff want more money because their wages are said to have very moderately increased in recent years and lagged behind the competition. AkzoNobel dubbed the wage demand irresponsible.
