Arkema has just brought on stream successfully and on schedule its new Kynar PVDF production fluorinated polymer plant at its Changshu site in China.
This plant helps provide for the growth of Asian customers, and better respond to global demand for PVDF in applications ranging from high performance industrial coatings, offshore and chemical engineering markets to emerging sectors like lithium-ion batteries and photovoltaic panels.
Arkema has decided to speed up the extension of this new plant by announcing in January this year an additional 50% capacity. This increase should come into effect by mid-2012.

A small number of companies are developing plastics from sustainable resources, such as plants not used as food sources, for photovoltaic cells, which are on the verge of an explosive growth burst. (Design News, 9 Feb 2010)
With reference to the above development, a top question abuzz in the global polymers industry and PV markets is: What are the latest technological innovations in Polymers for PVs, and will bioplastics play a more significant role in solar cell production in the near future?
For that reason, Polymer Apps in PV conference, scheduled on 16-17 June 2011 in Shanghai brings together an authoritative panel of experts to provide answers to above question, plus explore latest material substitution including the role of bioplastics in PV. Invited key industry professionals will provide updates on the newest innovations & trends in polymers for PV, as well as address challenges faced by Asian solar panel manufacturers and more.
