Chemtura Organometallics GmbH, a subsidiary of U.S.-based Chemtura Corp., says it has invested in satisfying growing demand for precursors in the photovoltaics markets.
The company has expanded its Bergkamen, Germany, plant to provide a greater supply of specialty chemicals, including diethylzinc (DEZ). A fully backwards-integrated production line with increased DEZ capacity started operations in the second quarter of 2010.
This line is designed to satisfy the growing demand for custom-made, high-purity DEZ in thin-film photovoltaic and semiconductor applications.Â
