Breaking ground on a new office building in the US
Construction of Zeochem's new office building in Louisville has started in June 2021. And the Chemistry Division is investing in increasing the lithium molecular sieve production capacities at the US site.
Zeochem started with the constructing a new office building at its US site in Louisville. When completed in summer 2022, the 15,000 square-foot (1,400 square-meter) building will house offices, meeting rooms, a state-of-the-art QC laboratory and R&D center. The new building will bring all teams together under one roof, alongside the manufacturing plant.
The Chemistry Division of the CPH group is also investing in an additional production facility at the Louisville site for lithium molecular sieves used to concentrate medical oxygen. As respiratory diseases increase worldwide, the demand for medical oxygen and thus for lithium molecular sieves is rising. The new facilities should start operations by mid 2022.
