Solutia Opens New Solar Encapsulant Manufacturing Facility in China

Solutia, a global provider of complete solutions for solar module manufacturers, has opened a new manufacturing center for Vistasolar ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) films in Suzhou, China. The center will supply Vistasolar EVA encapsulants for solar module application.

Solutia’s investment in the new facility represents its commitment to support solar module producers in reducing manufacturing cost and commercializing solar energy as other conventional energy sources. Majority of solar modules installed across the world are now produced by solar module manufacturers in China. The new center will reinforce Solutia position as a reliable supplier of high-quality encapsulants to the photovoltaic (PV) market in China.

The major requirement of the PV industry is to reduce the price of solar energy generation. The new Chinese investment enhances Solutia’s capability to reduce total production cost and improve its services to the Chinese solar module manufacturers.

This is the first EVA manufacturing facility that has been developed by Solutia after acquiring German-based Etimex Solar. Solutia is the sole producer of PV technologies that include thermoplastic polyurethane, PVB and EVA. The company also manufactures encapsulants in Mexico, Germany, Belgium, Brazil and the U.S.
