Eastman Completes Benzoflex Plasticizer Expansion at Estonia Site

Eastman Chemical Company announced it has completed an expansion of its Benzoflex™ plasticizer line at the Kohtla-Järve, Estonia, site. The expansion increases Benzoflex capacity by 11,000 metric tons at the site.

“Eastman acquired the Benzoflex™ plasticizer product line with the acquisition of Genovique Specialties Corporation earlier this year,” said Ron Lindsay, executive vice president, Performance Polymers and Chemical Intermediates. “The Kohtla-Järve site is an important extension to the production capabilities of Eastman’s plasticizer business and we are pleased to complete this site expansion. The additional Benzoflex capacity will allow us to continue to meet the growing needs of customers who are looking for sustainable alternatives to traditional phthalate plasticizers.”
