Oxea to increase capacity for specialty esters at Amsterdam site

Mary Page Bailey

Oxea S.à r.l. (Luxembourg; www.oxea-chemicals.com) has announced that it has successfully increased its capacity for specialty esters by 20 percent at its Amsterdam Esters Plant (AEP). The company’s investment for this expansion was in the single-digit-million Euro range. The expansion also includes 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).
