Posted on : 26 Jul, 2012 by SNEHA
In an effort to boost its output in toiletries and cleaning products, cosmetics manufacturer Kao is constructing a new surfactant production facility in the Jinshan district of Shanghai, China. With an estimated investment of approximately five billion yen (€51m), the new plant is scheduled to begin operation in 2014. It will produce surfactants which are used as raw materials for cosmetics and toiletries, industrial-use cleaners and molding materials.
Furthermore, Kao also announced that its Indonesia Chemicals division will build a new plant at Karawan International Industry City (KIIC), located in the suburbs of Jakarta, Indonesia. This facility which aims to meet the growing demand in Asia, and double the area of the current production site is estimated to cost 4bn yen (€39m) initially. It is planned to be completed by the end of 2014.
Reduction of CO2 emissions will be promoted at the new facility. According to Kao, it is striving to contribute to reducing its burden onthe environment. It intends to recycle resources as well as provide products that can contribute to reduced CO2 emission in the industrial sector.
