xea plans increase its European DOTP production

OBERHAUSEN, GERMANY: Chemical manufacturer Oxea is planning to increase its European capacity for Oxsoft GPO dioctyl terephthalate (DOTP) by 50,000 metric tonne by fourth quarter of 2015. Oxea has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a third party to establish a joint production of DOTP. Dioctyl terephthalate is a general purpose plasticizer used in a wide range of applications such as construction, automotive and flooring.

“The European market for phthalate-free plasticizers is growing rapidly. As a replacement mainly for dioctyl phthalate and diisononyl phthalate, DOTP is benefiting particularly from this development and our capacities need to be planned correspondingly,” said Christian Boehmer, Project Leader, Oxea.
