Nouryon and Atul successfully started production at Anaven, a new joint venture in Gujarat, India, that will help meet the rapidly growing demand in India's agricultural, personal care and pharmaceutical markets. Nouryon applied its expertise to build a plant that uses eco-friendly hydrogenation technology and employs the latest sustainability innovations for low energy consumption. The Anaven plant is also the only zero-liquid discharge MCA production site in the world, meaning that zero wastewater exits the plant a critical factor in India where water is scarce. The plant is also highly focused on continuous safety and was constructed with zero injuries.
