Industrial Asset Recovery Group (IARG) announced the liquidation of four  chemical plants formerly operated by Emerald Performance Materials in Henry, Illinois. Buyers have the opportunity to acquire complete processing units and chemical operations previously used in the manufacture of antioxidants, accelerators, and specialty chemicals used in tire production and other applications in the rubbers and elastomers industry. The plant officially ceased operations in 2021.

Interested parties can view available inventory by visiting or contact Stuart Millner at or 314-835-2812.

The liquidation will take place via negotiated sale and interested parties can schedule plant tours beginning January 2022.

Available inventory includes specialty equipment used in accelerator processing, antioxidant processing, additives manufacturing, NaMBT & Nash manufacturing, and a large tank farm used throughout operations at the facility.

This 18,000 sq/ft chemical plant operated was used to manufacture Cure-Rite® 18, an efficient thiocarbamyl sulfonamide rubber accelerator used in applications such as road tires, molded goods, hoses, and conveyor belts.

This 10,000 sq/ft chemical plant was used to manufacture Good-Rite® 3114, a high-purity antioxidant used in agriculture films and membranes, roto-molded goods, demanding wire and cable applications, polyolefin manufacturing, and other rubber products.

This 38,000 sq/ft chemical plant was used to manufacture multiple chemical products, such as StaLite®, VanLube®, 9317, and 50% NaMBT. StaLite® is an additive to general purpose antioxidants for elastomers. VanLube® is a lubricator used as an oxidation inhibitor and metal deactivator. 9317 is an amine antioxidant designed to enable high temperature performance in synthetic lubricants. 50% NaMBT is a solution of sodium salt used in the manufacturing of tires and similar mechanical rubber goods products.

This 4,000 sq/ft chemical plant was used to manufacture Good-Rite® NaMBT & NaSH. These chemical products are aqueouse solutions used as corrosion inhibitors, chemical intermediates, binding, processing, and dyes. Primary applications include wood pulping, mining/ore processing, chemical dyes, antifreeze, coolants, refrigeration, and similar uses.

Dozens of large storage tanks, from 15,000 to 30,000 gallon, used to capture and offload various chemical components throughout the plant processing areas at Emerald
Process Materials.

Certified riggers will be available for the removal of equipment and machinery post sale.
