Novacap prepares to open new sodium bicarbonate plant in Singapore
Novacap is preparing to open a stand-alone sodium bicarbonate plant in Singapore to help the French firm expand across the food, feed, pharmaceutical and health care industries in APAC.

The investment is under the company’s Novacarb subsidiary and will be operated by Novabay Pte Ltd.

Work on the site at Jurong Island began last June.

The plant will have a yearly production capacity of 70,000 metric tons with a potential mid-term capacity of 120,000 metric tons.

"This major investment is in line with Novacap's sustainable organic growth strategy, supported by our shareholders. This will enable us to offer high-quality grades and a strong alternative of Sodium Bicarbonate supply in Asia.

"Singapore is a perfect location and logistic hub to capture the growth and to efficiently serve our customers and targeted markets."​ said Raymond Sinnah, President of Novabay Pte Ltd and Vice-President of the Novacap Group’s Mineral Specialties division.
