Arysta opens granulation line in France
Arysta LifeScience has opened a new granulation line at its agrochemical formulation and packaging plant in Noguères, France. The unit will enable increased production of the fungicide, captan, for the European market. “We will soon be able to cater for 80% of our needs in captan,” says Kevin Smith, president and CEO of Arysta’s Europe and Middle East business. Around 25% of the plant’s output is for the French market, with the remainder exported, mainly to Poland, Germany and the Netherlands.
