MUTTENZ, GERMANY: Clariant International Ltd has officially inaugurated a new polypropylene (PP) catalyst production plant in Louisville, US. This plant was developed and implemented in assistance with Chicago Bridge & Iron Company (CB&I), which makes this site as Clariant’s biggest production hub in US.
