Chemours to expand with new Texas plant

Avatar photo

The Chemours Company, which spun off from Dupont Co. last year, will invest $230 million in a large-scale manufacturing facility in Texas to produce its Opteon chemical line. It will be the worldโ€™s largest facility for manufacturing hydrofluoroolefins.

The Ingleside, Texas, facility will allow Chemours to triple its production of Opteon.

Chemours is the leader manufacturer of HFO-1234yf-based products.

Opteon products were developed in response to environmental regulations.

โ€œIn many cases they perform better than the products they replace,” Chemours CEO Mark Vergnano said. โ€œThis is another step in our transformation plan, and is a shining example of how Chemours is investing in innovative growth opportunities as we become a higher-value chemistry company.โ€
