Lier Chemical’s glufosinate plant goes online
Chinese company Sichuan Lier Chemical’s new 1,000 tonnes/year manufacturing plant for the herbicide, glufosinate-ammonium, has passed environmental inspection and entered trial production, the company says. The plant forms half of a 2,000 tonnes/year glufosinate-ammonium facility that includes manufacturing capacity for 1,000 tonnes/year of a glufosinate-ammonium intermediate. The facility was planned to come online in May of this year. Glufosinate-ammonium is one of the company’s major export active ingredients.
