Located in the nucleus of oil and gas operations in South East Asia, the lab by Clariant Oil Services is the first Center of Excellence in Asia Pacific for its oil business. By utilizing LeanSigma approaches, which are the key methodology for Clariant's continuous improvement initiative known as Clariant Excellence, the new lab enables Clariant's oil services to deliver high performance and continuous improvement to its customers. The facility includes equipment, featuring standard and manual testing processes that model global Clariant Oil Services labs in North America, Brazil and the UK It also houses formula simulation and performance testing in emulsion, flow assurance, corrosion and scale control technologies.

Clariant Opens New Extension to Production Facility in Mumbai, India

Clariant has opened a new extension to its production facility in Roha, south-east of Mumbai, India. The expansion doubles its capacity at the facility for pigments and pigment preparations. This higher output will enable the company to increase its market coverage in India and the neighboring countries of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and to provide products better tailored to customer needs. The increase in capacity has been made possible with the introduction of the very latest equipment for high-end pigment preparation. The improved plant, in which Clariant has invested CHF 3.2 million (INR 200 million), forms part of a strategic program that the company has been carrying out in recent years to support customers in emerging markets with high quality pigments and pigment preparations that comply with local and international eco-labeling schemes. Pigments and pigment preparations produced at the Roha plant are for a wide range of applications, including interior and exterior coatings, packaging, personal, home and fabric care products seed coatings, and dispersions for printing.

Clariant Unveils New ShiftMax 120 HCF Catalyst

Clariant has announced the launch of its new ShiftMax 120 HCF catalyst. The enhanced high temperature shift catalyst avoids health and safety risks in ammonia and hydrogen production as it contains essentially no hexavalent chromium. This was tested and confirmed by the independent institute, Seibersdorf Laboratories, according to OECD test#29. ShiftMax 120 HCF is thus fully compliant with REACH Regulations of the European Community, which will inhibit the sale of compounds containing Cr6+ beyond a very low threshold. Clariant's high performance ShiftMax 120 HCF is the successor to ShiftMax 120, one of the most widely used HTS catalysts in the syngas industry with 30 years of proven performance in terms of activity and longevity. The new ShiftMax 120 HCF is practically identical to its predecessor after initial activation. It provides the same advantages with regard to low operating temperatures and CO leakages, excellent mechanical stability, especially during plant upsets, and long service life. It is also very effective in preventing Fischer-Tropsch byproduct formation when operating at low steam to gas conditions. The key difference between the two catalysts is that the new production process reduces the content of hexavalent chromium to non-detectable levels, thereby eliminating health and safety concerns during handling and commissioning. ShiftMax 120 HCF has already been successfully installed in several hydrogen plants. No special startup procedures are required to control the exothermic reaction of hexavalent to trivalent chromium.
