Solvay to more than double its SOLEF PVDF production capacity in China

News

Solvay is reinforcing its leadership in the lithium-ion battery market by more than doubling its production capacity of high performance polymer SOLEF polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) at its production site in Changshu, China.

Info

This project supports the Group's recently-announced G.R.O.W. STRATEGY, which focuses investment in high-growth sustainable solutions in materials. The new site production is targeted to be on stream by H1, 2022.

Sustainable mobility is driving double-digit growth demand for PVDF in applications in lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles, where Asia is the largest market. Solvay's solutions and innovation pipeline in SOLEF PVDF will help its customers optimise energy storage efficiency by increasing the battery's energy density, safety and power. Other growing applications include offshore oil and gas pipes and liners, high purity semiconductors, and membranes for water purification.

“Solvay's decision to raise SOLEF PVDF capacity in Changshu, which follows our recent announcement to raise capacity in Europe, proves our continuous commitment to meeting our customers' needs worldwide,” said Solvay Executive Committee Member Augusto Di Donfrancesco.

Recently, the World Alliance For Efficient Solutions created by the Solar Impulse Foundation recognised the value of SOLEF PVDF as a sustainable (and profitable) solution for a cleaner environment.
