Clariant Opens New Desiccant Manufacturing Plant in China
Clariant announced the opening of a new desiccant manufacturing plant at its site in Zhengjiang, China. The company will produce its line of Container Dri II products alongside a full range of desiccant bags at the new facility, extending its existing regional support for the Asian market.
The specially-designed cargo desiccants, Container Dri II, protect goods from the harmful effects of moisture and water damage during shipping via container, rail barge or truck. Container Dri II plays a vital role in preserving edible cargo and other sensitive goods during long transport across different climate zones.
In Zhengjiang, Clariant has the advantage of access to locally-sourced bentonite clay and the drying facilities offered by its Functional Minerals Business Unit to support its production of desiccant bags for export packagers, machine manufacturers and food packaging.
To meet growing desiccant demand from Asia, Clariant opened its first Container Dri II production plant in Indonesia in March 2014. Both sites are part of Clariant’s worldwide network for desiccant manufacturing, which also includes plants in Brazil, Turkey and USA.
