Chemours Co. broke ground on an HFO-1234yf production facility at its Corpus Christi plant in Ingleside, Texas. When completed, the facility will be the world’s largest for manufacturing hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs), according to the company.

The facility will triple the Chemours’ capacity for HFO-1234yf-based-products. Chemours will sell the low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant products and blends manufactured at this plant in its Opteon product line.
