Chemours ramp ups production capacity of HFC-152a

Investment represents company’s commitment to advancing global climate and air-quality targets

The Chemours Company (Chemours) is expanding production of Chemours HFC-152a by approximately 20 percent. In addition to helping meet customer demands for lower global warming potential (GWP) propellants and foam blowing agents, the expansion will enable reduced VOCs (volatile organic compounds) in consumer products and support the growing demand in thermal insulation foam products.

The capacity expansion will occur at the company’s manufacturing facility in Ingleside, Texas—located 20 minutes outside of Corpus Christi—completion expected by mid-2024.

HFC-152a is a versatile, low GWP, non-VOC, aerosol propellant and foam blowing agent used in a wide range of personal care, household, industrial, and construction applications.

“As regulations drive the continued phasedown of high GWP propellants, HFC-152a will continue to be a critical tool for aerosol formulators and insulating foam producers, offering the consistent, reliable, high-performance their customers demand,” said Joseph Martinko, President of Thermal & Specialized Solutions at Chemours.

“Chemours is dedicated to helping customers across industries meet evolving regulatory requirements with solutions that minimize environmental impact without compromising performance. This investment is simply the latest example of that commitment. We will continue to invest in HFC-152a and other low GWP solutions to meet the needs of our customers and downstream users with minimal impact on our shared planet.”
