"We are observing an extremely high demand for our blowing agent Cyclopentane. The reasons for this include topics such as building insulation and energy efficiency, which are becoming even more important as a result of the European Green Deal", says René Tessmann, Business Unit Manager Industrial at Haltermann Carless, who adds: "With our new hydrogenation plant, we can address the capacity shortfall on the global market, steadily expand our market presence in important industries and regions and contribute to greater sustainability together with our customers."

The Speyer hydrogenation plant is the largest investment Haltermann Carless has made since becoming part of the HCS Group. In addition to the Pentane product line, the plant will also be used to produce Middle Distillates with a particularly high degree of purity, as required by the pharmaceutical or printing ink industries. The plant will also allow the company to develop and offer new types of products and facilitate the production of renewable hydrocarbons in the future.
