Only weeks away from lighting up the new system

The Group’s major investment, the Valerox project, at Site Stenungsund is running at a high pace – this week some of the last installations for the new flare have been carried out. Soon it is time to light it up!

The Valerox project is one of the largest investments ever in Perstorp’s history bringing new capacity to the Group in the field of plasticizers. The market for the new plasticizer, DPHP, is increasingly strong and the product has been well received by the market. DPHP is expected to be a key mainstream high molecular weight plasticizer, used in many different PVC applications.

This week some of the last installations for the new flare have been carried out and we are now only weeks away from lighting up the new system. Meanwhile the ester unit produced its first tonnage of Emoltene™ 100 TOP, a new grade of Emoltene™ product, marketed and sold primarily to cables and roofing industries where it needs to ensure a shelf life of + 20 years.
