Clariant signs long-term ethylene supply contract with OMV

Mary Page Bailey

Clariant International Ltd. (Muttenz, Switzerland; www.clariant.com), announced that it has signed a long-term supply contract with OMV. From 2015, the Austrian oil and gas company will supply Clariant's site in Gendorf (Germany) with ethylene. This agreement will enable Clariant to source most of its requirements for ethylene in southern Bavaria. The Clariant plant in Gendorf is part of the Industrial & Consumer Specialties (ICS) Business Unit and, with around 700 employees, is the business unit’s largest production site. The specialty chemicals company produces ethylene oxide, for which ethylene is a major raw material.

Over the last years, the Gendorf site has been expanded within the defined global strategy. As well as increasing production capacities, particular emphasis has also been placed on expanding the product range and raising quality standard. As part of the ICS global quality initiative, the Gendorf site is not only ISO 9001- and ISO 14001-certified but has also recently obtained cosmetics GMP ISO 22716 certification.
