Solenis, Wilmington, Del., will invest approximately $5 million at its manufacturing facility in Perm, Russia.

The project will double production capacity for the company’s polyacrylamide powders used in water-based industries including pulp, paper, oil and gas, chemical processing, mining, biorefining and power. It will also create two new production lines to handle increased sales of its sizing and defoamer products in the pulp and paper industry. The expansion is scheduled to be completed next month.
