Solvay completed the expansion of the company’s Mount Pleasant, Tennessee, U.S.A., facility to meet growing demand from copper mining for its ACORGA products. The facility manufactures solvent extraction reagents.

The company said the expansion was a major achievement that helps it ensure the security of supply for customers while responding to their increasing production needs. “We expect to add additional capacity in the future to remain a reliable, long-term partner and help our mining customers maximize metallurgical results and overall operational value,” said Matthew Davis, global business director, mineral processing and metal extraction.
