DuPont expanding Czech PVB sheet plant

Global giant DuPont Co. has launched a $14 million plant in the Czech Republic producing its Butacite G PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayer film sheet for laminated glass.

Butacite G is manufactured from 100% recycled PVB and is used in safety glass for the automotive and construction industries. Increasingly, the technology is employed in the fast-growing photovoltaic sector, according to DuPont.

The new plant in Holesov, which is set to become DuPont’s “hub in Central Europe,” opened late last year and has so far created 70 jobs. The group sees the Czech Republic as a promising growth market for its new local production.

“This represents DuPont moving further into Central and Eastern Europe, and contributing to these economies. In terms of environmental benefit, the patented technology used to produce Butacite G at this facility substantially reduces the amount of scrap material that otherwise would need to be land filled or incinerated,” said Stephen Cox, vice-president of the DuPont glass laminating business.
