Teijin Aramid has announced it will start its second round of Twaron fiber production expansions. The capacity increase will take place in the two factories in the Netherlands, Delfzijl and Emmen. Delfzijl is the production site for monomer and polymer; the plant in Emmen is used for spinning. The increase is expected to result in about 25 new jobs in the region and is scheduled to be finished in 2022.
The capacity increase will be used as an opportunity to invest in new technologies that reduce CO2 emissions, reported Teijin. The company’s goal is to create a sustainable circular aramid supply chain. To accomplish that aim, the company is committing to using increasingly green raw materials, being more energy efficient and being part of the energy transition movement.
Teijin Aramid is a subsidiary of the Teijin Group and producer of aramid products used in the automotive, ballistic protection, marine, civil engineering, protective clothing, and oil and gas markets.
