Dynasol/Xing’an: Agreement to Produce Synthetic Rubber in China
Dynasol, a subsidiary of Repsol and the Kuo Group, has signed an agreement with China’s Shanxi Northern Xing’an Chemical Industry (Xing’an) to produce and market rubber in China. The two companies are to set up a joint company which will build a plant in north-eastern China with an annual capacity of 100,000 tonnes of rubber solution.
The agreement stipulates that both companies will have an equal share in the new company. Additionally, the rubber produced may also be sold to other countries in the region.
Dynasol will supply the production technology and the know-how in developing new products and will also provide technical service to clients, essential elements in the market for different types of synthetic rubber.
Xing’an is a subsidiary of a diversified Chinese business group which owns a chemical complex in Liaoning province, in northeast China. The new rubber facility will be part of the complex, resulting in a seamless integration of its main raw materials, styrene and butadiene, ensuring a reliable, consistent supply of both products.
Dynasol is a global seller which today has two world-scale plants, in Spain and North America. With this new plant it will also become a global producer, boosting its present capacity by 50%.
