Emerald Performance Materials Expands Rotterdam Facility

Emerald Kalama Chemical, a business group of Emerald Performance Materials, will re-start a second benzoic acid reactor train at its facility in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, adding 75,000 metric tons of new capacity for benzoic acid. The project is slated for completion in the second quarter of 2014.

The added capacity will support sales of the company's Kalama and Purex brand of benzoic acid and benzoate preservatives, as well as the expanding internal consumption needs for downstream products which have been driving growth.

Benzoic acid is a key starting material for production of K-Flex non-phthalate plasticizers and coalescents manufactured at the site.

Emerald Performance Materials is a mid-sized specialty chemical company that was formed on May 1, 2006, as an affiliate of Sun Capital Partners, following the divesture of certain businesses from Lubrizol. Since then the company has made three acquisitions: CVC Specialty Chemicals, the carbon black dispersion product line of Wolstenholme International, and DSM Special Products, including its operation in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
