Perstorp Specialty Chemicals AB, Perstorp, Sweden, has successfully started a new major Oxo plant in Sweden. Production of key raw materials for Perstorp’s general purpose PVC plasticizers, Valeraldehyde and 2-propylheptanol, and associated chemicals at a major extension to Perstorp’s main plant in Stenugsund, Sweden has begun on time. Prime material is being produced soon after start-up.

Magnus Lannér, Perstorp’s new Executive Vice President of Operations, says: “The new Oxo plant, which produces aldehydes and derivatives, is a testament to the company’s commitment to the PVC industry. This will greatly strengthen Perstorp’s reliability for its plasticizers offer to the market, by upstream integration into their essential raw materials. The new Oxo plant also enables us to produce n-valeric acid and 2-propyl heptanol (2-PH) which are key intermediates for lubricants, adhesives and surfactants."

With the conclusion of its largest plant investment ever, Perstorp has boosted its total Oxo capacity by 150,000 tonnes per year and become one of the few fully integrated suppliers of plasticizers. According to the company, this improved production position, in combination with logistics centers in several countries, now provides Perstorp customers with improved access to market-leading high performance, sustainable and cost effective plasticizers.
