WILMINGTON, Del. — The Chemours Co., a global chemistry company in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts, and chemical solutions, announced that it has broken ground on a new HFO-1234yf production facility. The new facility, located at the Chemours Corpus Christi plant in Ingleside, Texas, will triple the company’s capacity for its HFO-1234yf-based-products, which are low-global warming potential (GWP) and better for the environment. Chemours will sell the low GWP refrigerant products and blends manufactured at this new plant under its Opteon™ trade name.
“This new facility represents a significant step forward for Chemours as it demonstrates our commitment to providing low-GWP solutions to the refrigerants industry,” said Mark Vergnano, Chemours president and CEO. “We see our Opteon products as the future for this industry since they provide the optimal balance of properties necessary to transition the world away from hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), the previous generation of refrigerants.”
