Asahi Kasei to build new hollow-fiber spinning plant

Feb '08
Asahi Kasei Medical will construct a new plant to spin hollow-fiber membranes for Planova virus removal filters. With a production capacity of 40,000 m2/year the new plant will raise total production capacity from the present 30,000 m2/year to 70,000 m2/year upon completion in March 2009. The new plant will be located adjacent to the Planova assembly plant in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan.

Planova virus removal filters are used to enhance safety in the production process for biotherapeutic products such as biopharmaceuticals and plasma derivatives.

The outstanding performance of Planova filters in combining high rates of virus clearance with high rates of protein recovery has been widely recognized throughout the world, and nearly 90% of Planova sales are to customers in Europe and the US.

With heightened standards throughout the world for the viral safety of biotherapeutics and advances in the development of monoclonal antibodies and other biopharmaceuticals, demand for Planova filters is growing briskly.

The new spinning plant, together with a new assembly line completed in September 2007, will enable Asahi Kasei Medical to meet this growing demand. Asahi Kasei Medical is also advancing new product development to meet emerging needs for quality and performance.

Asahi Kasei Corporation, with consolidated sales of US$10 billion, provides innovative solutions based in chemistry and materials science to a diverse range of markets including fibers, chemicals, consumer products, housing, construction, electronics, and health care.
