DSM announces 4-month shutdown in H2 2018 to further upgrade its vitamin C facility in Jiangshan, China

Shanghai, CN, 02 May 2018 09:00 CEST

DSM is continuing to invest in improving the performance of its vitamin C plant in Jiangshan, China, as part of its ongoing commitment to quality, safety, sustainability and production efficiencies. To implement an extensive series of upgrades in these areas throughout the site, the facility will have a prolonged shutdown in the second half of 2018.

This shutdown will start in July and is expected to take 4 months.

The upgrades not only contribute to DSM's sustainability strategy, but also proactively address the Chinese Government’s “Green China, Beautify Country” policy (also known as “Blue Skies” policy) and will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support sustainable development in Jiangsu province.

DSM assures security of supply of vitamin C to its contracted customers during the shutdown.

Fully aligned with our Quality for Life™ principles, DSM continuously invests in meeting the expectations of customers, governments, societies and employees in terms of quality, reliability, traceability and sustainability.
