Filed under: Silica — Notch @ 7:00 am

On July 22, Huber Engineered Materials announced plans to expand silica capacity at its manufacturing facility in Jhagadia, India. The expansion will more than double the current capacity to a 33,000 metric tons per year by early 2012. Huber’s Jhagadia plant produces silica and silicate products for a variety of applications, including toothpaste, paints and coatings and paper. The new capacity is designed to meet the growing demand for each of these applications in India and the surrounding region.

Chuck Herak, Vice President and General Manager of Huber’s Silica business unit, said of the expansion, “With the successful start-up of our newest silica plant in Qingdao, China, we can now focus our expansion efforts on this new project in India.”
