Perstorp Inaugurates New Oxo Plant in Sweden

Perstorp Holding AB, Malmö, Sweden, officially opened a major extension to its capacity to produce PVC plasticizers and key chemical intermediates. The new state-of-the-art Oxo plant in Stenungsund, Sweden, began producing material soon after its start-up in January, and is now running at full regime and delivering high quality material according to plan.

“The new production platform is the single largest investment in Perstorp’s history and clearly demonstrates Perstorp’s commitment to the PVC industry,” says Perstorp CEO Jan Secher. “It significantly boosts our output of valeraldehyde and 2-propyl heptanol (2-PH), two key raw materials for Perstorp’s general purpose PVC plasticizers, Emoltene 100 and Pevalen." Perstorp now has one of the few fully integrated platforms in Europe providing customers with ready access to high performance, sustainable and cost-effective plasticizers. The Oxo plant is also a source of products for other key markets: 2-propyl heptanol is used in production of lubricants, adhesives and surfactants, for example. While n-valeric acid, which is also made in the plant directly from valeraldehyde, is an important raw material for lubricants, pharmaceuticals and fragrances.

Perstorp's new Oxo plant in Stenungsund, Sweden, the result of the company's largest-ever investment, is now producing key feedstocks for PVC plasticizers, lubricants, adhesives and surfactants (figure: Perstorp)

Perstorp offers two ranges of general purpose plasticizers, Emoltene 100 and Pevalen. Emoltene 100, a C10 plasticizer (di-propyl heptyl phthalate, DPHP), is one of the thoroughly tested phthalate plasticizers on the market. It is intended for outdoor durable applications, most notably cables, wires and roofing membranes, where it contributes to extra durability under harsh conditions.

Pevalen is an innovative non-phthalate plasticizer, partially derived from renewable resources, that meets the safety and performance requirements of “close-to-consumer” PVC applications such as flooring and coated fabrics. It provides unbeatable softness and UV stability, and presents processors and users with a highly sustainable solution for a large number of high-volume applications.
