ICI Surfactants Breaks Ground For Expansion

ICI Surfactants, Wilmington, Del., recently broke ground for the expansion of its Atlas Point plant in New Castle, Del. The expansion will increase the sites capacity by 35 percent.

According to the company, the expansion will feature a new alkoxylation reactor that will produce nonionic, alkoxylate-type specialty products. ICIs Atlas Point site produces a wide range of specialty products, which are formed by reacting various initiators with ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, or both.

The new reactor will incorporate enhancements and new technology to make it an industry leader in safety and productivity, the company says. This is the first major expansion at the Atlas Point site since 1991.
