About Us


JX Nippon Chemical Texas Inc. (JX NCTI) is a wholly owned subsidiary of JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy (JXTG NOE) of Japan.

JX NCTI was originally formed in 1989 (as Nisseki Chemical Texas Inc.) to manufacture specialty chemicals utilizing proprietary technology developed by JXTG NOE.

A process for the manufacture of Ethylidene Norbornene (ENB) was developed in the 1970’s by our parent company (JXTG NOE). This proprietary process is used at a plant located in Kashima, Japan and two operating units in our Pasadena, TX facility (started in 2003 and 2007).
ENB is primarily used as a ter-monomer in the production of certain grades of EPDM rubber. Please follow the links on this page for more information about our ENB product or co-products or contact our commercial group here.

JX NCTI and its employees are dedicated to providing outstanding products and services to our customers and to being a respected neighbor and active partner in our community. JX NCTI is a member of the Bay Area Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), East Harris County Manufacturers Association (EHCMA), Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and other local community organizations.
