Nissan Chemical America Corporation Plans Major Expansion at Pasadena, Texas, Facility

Nissan Chemical America Corporation is undergoing a $1.4 million expansion of its production facility in Pasadena, Texas.

According to company officials, the goal of this plant improvement project is to increase production capacity to meet the rising sales demand of nanoActiv products from the oil and gas industry. nanoActiv HRT is a well additive treatment mechanically powered by highly surface-modified nanoparticles. These particles are designed to penetrate deep into the natural fracture network and persist with long efficacy to deliver increased and sustained oil and gas production.

"The capital expansion will add storage capacity for a rapidly growing business, while upgraded instrumentation and automation will serve to ensure the highest levels of quality in our products," says Robert Griffith, Vice President and General Manager of the facility.

William Smith, President & CEO of NCA adds, "The expansion enhances our commitment to reliably serving customers in the Permian Basin, while expanding our abilities to produce new products in the nanoActiv® series."

The project, which started in November 2017, is expected to come on line in the third quarter of 2018. Nissan Chemical America Corporation is a division of Nissan Chemical Industries, founded in 1887 as the first chemical fertilizer manufacturer in Japan. A forerunner in chemical innovations for more than 130 years, Nissan Chemical currently manufactures products for the chemical, agrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries and is a market leader in the production of nanomaterials for the automotive, coatings, electronics, and oil and gas recovery industries.

Nissan Chemical said it has been perfecting nanoparticles since 1951, making it one of the first companies in the world to produce highly surface-modified particles for industrial applications. Nissan's years of experience, proprietary materials, and patented technologies have made them a worldwide leader in the production of refined nanoparticle solutions.
