Clariant’s new ReforMax® 330 LDP Plus catalyst increases significantly energy and production efficiency at OCI’s ammonia plant

ReforMax 330 LDP Plus, Clariant’s next-generation catalyst for steam reforming and autothermal reforming. 
(Photo: Clariant)The first commercial reference for Clariant’s ReforMax 330 LDP Plus catalyst is a major success. Installed at OCI Nitrogen’s ammonia production plant in Geleen, Netherlands, the new steam reforming catalyst has significantly reduced pressure drop, allowing the customer to benefit from a considerable increase in energy and production efficiency leading to savings of more than 300,000€ over the catalyst lifetime.

Reduce and boost! Clariant launches new natural choice for effective and safe cosmetics preservation

Reduce and boost! Clariant launches new natural choice for effective and safe cosmetics preservation. 
(Photo: Clariant)Clariant expands the Personal Care industry’s increasingly-limited preservation options for both traditional and natural formulations with the launch of next generation preservation booster Velsan® Flex. The 93% RCI (Renewable Carbon Index) innovation is highly versatile and effective in combination with all preservative types, enabling a reduction of typical preservative by as much as 50% while still achieving safe antimicrobial protection for cosmetics.

A new high-performance life for plastic waste: Lavergne and Clariant develop halogen-free flame-retardant compounds for electronics based on recycled ocean-bound plastics (OBP)

Laptop computers are a typical end application for Lavergne’s VYPET™ OBP compounds using Clariant’s Exolit® OP flame retardants. 
(Photo: Clariant)Clariant teamed up with Lavergne, a world leader in the production of sustainable engineering resin from recycled plastic, to develop halogen-free flame-retardant polyester compounds made from ocean-bound plastics. With the first grade already commercialised, the advance is supporting demand from major electrical and electronics brand owners for flame retarded post-consumer recyclate grades for equipment parts.

Clariant Masterbatches introduces new colors for high temperature resins used in FAKRA connectors

Available in 14 standard colors, new Clariant masterbatches help ensure performance and color stability in high-temperature engineering plastics.
