LAWRENCE, KAS. — ICL Performance Products will expand its capacity by building an additional sodium hexametaphosphate (SHMP) plant at its facility in Lawrence. It should be completed late in 2011. The investment will include packaging automation and a new heat recovery system to reduce energy consumption.

“With the expansion, ICL will have a greater opportunity to meet customers’ needs in several growth markets, including food additives, dentrifice, beverages and water treatment,” said Angela Schewe, phosphates business director for St. Louis-based ICL Performance Products.
