Lier Chemical to build herbicide intermediate plant

Chinese company Sichuan Lier Chemical plans to invest Yuan 72 million ($11.8 million) in a 1,000 tonnes/year manufacturing plant for a glufosinate-ammonium herbicide intermediate. The plant will form part of a 2,000 tonnes/year glufosinate-ammonium production facility that was first mooted in 2013. The intermediate plant is expected to come online by the end of May next year, by which time the company’s production capacity for glufosinate-ammonium will have increased by some 1,000 tonnes/year. Glufosinate-ammonium is one of the company’s major export active ingredients. Lier Chemical recorded export sales of $131.2 million in 2013.
