Oxea completes the construction of carboxylic acids plant in Oberhausen, Germany

OBERHAUSEN, GERMANY: Oxea has mechanically completed its new carboxylic acids plant in Oberhausen, Germany. After a construction period of fifteen months, work is now underway to prepare for the start of operations. Oxea expects the new stateof-the-art plant to go on stream soon and be able to manufacture products to specification in short.

Once commissioned, the new facility will boost Oxea’s global carboxylic acids production capacity by another 40 per cent. The plant, named ‘Carboxylic Acids 3,’ is Oxea’s fifth production plant for carboxylic acids world-wide.

“The growing global demand for synthetic fatty acids in segments such as energy-efficient lubricant esters and specialty phthalate-free plasticizers is the main driver behind our ongoing capacity increases. Our new plant will be instrumental in helping Oxea meet this rising demand. It further strengthens our position as the global leader and the supplier of the broadest carboxylic acids product portfolio overall,” said Miguel Mantas, member of Executive Board, responsible for Sales and Marketing, Oxea.
