Singapore -Â ExxonMobil has broken ground on its giant petrochemical project in Singapore. The project, expected to be the world's largest, is due on stream in 2011 and includes capacity for 300 000 tons of speciality elastomers, the company said.
In addition to this project, Exxon said it has recently made a number of customer-focused investments for its specialty elastomers portfolio in the rapidly growing Asia Pacific region.
Customers in mainland China can now buy the full portfolio of Santoprene™ thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) from inventory stocked in China using local currency. Other ExxonMobil brands such as Vistamaxx™, Vistalon™ and Exact™ specialty elastomers are also available.
Other investments in the region include a specialty polymers laboratory in Bangalore, India for fabrication development and testing, and the Polymers Automotive Applications Center in Kawasaki, Japan.
