Oxea expanding 3-methylbutanol plant

OBERHAUSEN, GERMANY: Chemical manufacturer Oxea is expanding its portfolio of higher alcohols with 3-methylbutanol (isoamyl alcohol), a versatile intermediate product for the chemical industry. Oxea will manufacture 3-methylbutanol in Oberhausen, Germany. The product is already available in commercial quantities.

“Oxea’s launch of n-heptanol last year was met with an excellent market response. The production of 3-methylbutanol is the next step in our strategy of complementing our alcohol portfolio in a customer-focused way. We are experiencing encouraging demand in this segment, and our customers are achieving excellent value added with products that are derived from raw materials out of the Oxea portfolio. We will keep expanding our product range of higher alcohols to be able to also cover the future demand of our customers worldwide,” said Dr Christoph Balzarek, Global Marketing Manager Amines, Higher Aldehydes and Specialty Derivatives, Oxea.
