PPG using TiO2 from Henan Billions

09 February 2016

PPG Industries has begun using chloride-grade titanium dioxide (TiO2) produced in commercial quantities by Henan Billions Chemicals Co Ltd including PPG’s licensed chloride-based technology. PPG is using the TiO2 to produce standard grades of its coatings products. The 366,000m2 plant that produced the chloride-grade TiO2 is located in the Henan Province of China and currently has capacity to produce 100,000t/yr with the capability to expand. Under an agreement established in 2012, PPG licensed certain chloride-based technologies for the manufacture of TiO2 to Henan Billions for use on a global basis. PPG has supported the start up of Henan Billions’ new chloride process plant with quality and process improvements, analytical testing support and product evaluations. PPG also may license its technology to other TiO2 producers.

"Our partnership with Henan Billions exemplifies PPG’s commitment to securing high-quality supplies of titanium dioxide required to support our business growth,” said Michael H McGarry, PPG president and CEO. "This latest accomplishment with our strategic partner Henan Billions is a milestone in our relationship.”
