Stenungsund/Sweden – After an official launch in January, Perstorp's new production lines at the Stenungsund Oxo plant are running at full capacity: The company has one of the few fully integrated platforms in Europe providing customers with ready access a broad spectrum of 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.

“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 innovative general purpose PVC plasticizers.”
