“I am delighted that the collaboration between Celanese and SWCHEM has enabled us to reach such a critical milestone in the development of this new technology to produce acrylic acid from acetic acid. This could create additional demand for acetic acid while also improving the supply options for acrylic acid consumers,” said John Fotheringham, Senior Vice President of Celanese’s Acetyls business.

“SWCHEM has a longstanding relationship with Celanese dating back to 2008,” said Mr. Chen Jiang, President of SWCHEM. “This agreement marks the expansion of our cooperation into deeper value chain of the acetyls industry.”

“We are excited to be part of a winning team,” said Mr. Liu Qiang, President of LUNAN. “The successful commercialization of this technology will promote organic growth of the acetic acid industry and LUNAN is proud to be part of this effort.”
