Chisso expands production.
In an effort to satisfy growing demand both domestically and abroad for ES fibers (polypropylene/polyethylene bicomponent fiber), Chisso, Osaka, Japan, has announced plans to introduce a new plant with an annual capacity of 10,000 tons of ES fiber production. Chisso currently produces 27,000 tons of polypropylene staple fiber each year. The investment in the new facility is indicative of the increased use of ES fibers in nonwovens. Capital investment for the plant is approximately 2 billion [yen].
