WARRINGTON, UK: Perstorp announced a significant investment to upgrade its original monomer plant in Warrington, UK, securing the future of its Caprolactone business.

The new equipment will be constructed using state of the art materials and the investment will future proof the production and even further increase the security of supply.

The Caprolactone market is strategic and important to Perstorp. This investment is one step further in the company’s long-term commitment to the industry.

The project was initiated and kicked off in the beginning of 2017 and construction phase of the new parts of the plant will start in the New Year. The replacement will be conducted in a way that does not impact current production. The plant upgrade consists of installing a new peracetic acid still and new reactors on stream 1, which was originally built in 1998. The project is expected to be complete in the second half of 2019.

“The Capa business is one of our strategic areas and we do see a strong market demand for Capa products. Through this investment we are strengthening our position as a reliable leading partner,” said Marie Gronborg, executive vice president at Perstorp.
