Construction of Accoya USA’s modified wood manufacturing facility in Kingsport, Tn., remains on schedule, to begin operations in mid-2024.
The reactors, essential for the wood acetylation process, arrived in May and were successfully installed at the 100,000-sq. ft. facility, a joint venture between Accoya and Eastman.
North America represents the largest potential regional market for Accoya, and the new plant will ensure a ready supply of Accoya to the U.S. market. Once operational, the Kingsport facility will only supply the North American market, representing an additional 67% increase in capacity compared to 2022 volumes worldwide.
