Oxea Increases Isononanoic Acid Production Capacity at Oberhausen, Germany

The global chemical company Oxea successfully completed a debottleneck of its existing isononanoic acid production units in Oberhausen, Germany. The company will use the additional production capacity to support the growth of the global synthetic lubricants market. This debottlenecking project is the first in a series of improvements designed to increase Oxea’s production capacity for carboxylic acids in the short term. The company also aims to bring its sixth world-scale carboxylic acids production plant on stream in 2021.

“Additional projects to further increase our carboxylic acids production are at various stages of planning and implementation. Oxea’s flexible approach to manufacturing isononanoic acid in multiple units provides us with opportunities to quickly expand our supply position,” said Kyle Hendrix, Global Commercial Director for Carboxylic Acids and Derivatives.
