Perstorp to double carboxylic acid production capacity

Continously rising demand across markets
Perstorp to double carboxylic acid production capacity

Perstorp will build a new plant on the site of its existing carboxylic acid production operation in Stenungsund, Sweden Picture: Perstorp

Leading specialty chemicals company Perstorp plans to have extra capacity of around 70,000 t/a for production of carboxylic acids onstream during 2024. The investment will enable Perstorp to increase output significantly and strengthen its position as the sustainable solutions provider. Increased capacity will meet growing demand in various high-value applications, including non-phthalate plasticisers for PVC, engineered fluids for applications such as refrigeration lubricants, and various propionates used in food preservation and carboxylic acids for use in animal feed gut health and preservation products. Most of the output will be used in downstream production operated by Perstorp itself.

Perstorp will build a new plant on the site of its existing carboxylic acid production operation in Stenungsund, Sweden. Like the original unit, it will be capable of producing acids from C3 to C9 chemistry. Both plants will be fully integrated into Perstorp’s Oxo production platform.

Perstorp has a unique position among plasticiser producers in offering Pevalen, a high-performance polyolester plasticiser, ideal for sensitive close-to-consumer applications such as coated fabric and films and sheets. Pevalen meets growing calls for new-generation plasticisers and has performance advantages over some of the most commonly used plasticiser solutions in terms of efficiency and UV stability. Perstorp also uses carboxylic acids for its in-house production of various grades of food preservativeand animal feed preservative. It is the only company in the world making these products with upstream integration.
