Oxea pecialty esters production increased by 20 percent

OBERHAUSEN, GERMANY: The chemical company Oxea has successfully increased its capacity by 20 per cent for specialty esters at its Amsterdam Esters Plant (AEP). To this end, the company invested an amount in the single-figure million Euro range to implement several optimization measures.

Oxea produces several phthalate-free plasticizers at AEP, including Oxsoft TOTM (trioctyl trimellitate) and DOTP (dioctyl terephthalate), marketed under the brand name Oxsoft GPO. This capacity upgrade will specifically benefit producers of medical devices and flooring that are looking for alternatives to replace the conventional plasticizers, dioctyl phthalate (DOP) and diisononyl phthalate (DINP).

“The increasing demand for phthalate-free plasticizers re-affirms the strategic vision of Oxea and the necessity of continuous investments and initiatives that we have embarked upon to address the industry’s changing requirements. This capacity enhancement in Amsterdam is another excellent example of our strong commitment to supporting our customers with sufficient and reliable supplies of specialty esters,” said Cristobal Ascencio, Global Vice President, Oxo Derivatives, Oxea.
