Libra Speciality Chemicals: News

Exciting day at Libra Speciality Chemicals

The first concrete trucks have started to pour the foundation slab and bunding for the new Cocamidopropyl Betaine (CAPB) at our manufacturing facility at Manchester (UK). We are on schedule for full scale commercially approved production at the end of Q1 2018.

With a state of the art design including a distillation column and two main reactors of 30,000 litres and 60,000 litres, we will be able to produce up to 30k t/pa of surfactants used in personal care and cleaning applications.

Providing best in class quality and service we will be able to produce surfactants in 200 litre drums, 1000 litre IBC’s and Full Bulk tankers and continuing to deliver across the world.

This is a great step forward for the UK chemical manufacturing industry and Libra Speciality Chemicals is proud to be investing in this critical industry, cementing our future in the North West.
