Oxea’s new world-scale propanol production unit at its Bay City site in Texas, USA, is mechanically complete. The new facility “Propanol 2” is now being commissioned and is scheduled for commercial production in the third quarter of 2018. With a nameplate capacity of 100,000 mt per annum of n-propanol, Propanol 2 is currently one of Oxea’s largest investment projects. Utilizing Oxea’s advanced proprietary process technology and its comprehensive process know-how, process stability in the new unit will be improved, achieving an even higher product quality. Furthermore, Propanol 2 will produce less undesirable by products due to optimized and more efficient production.
