OBERHAUSEN, Germany – The chemical company Oxea is using newly developed processes to expand production at its Bishop, TX, site. The optimizations will add volume beyond the already announced capacity increases for potassium formate and trimethylolpropane (TMP).

“Our production site in Bishop is of great importance to our polyols, which constitute a significant part of Oxea’s Derivatives portfolio. These products have a very diversified range of uses in manufacturing industries, and we market the portfolio worldwide,” said Miguel Mantas, Member of Oxea’s Executive Board and responsible for marketing and sales.

The company was able to expand capacity, increase on-stream reliability and develop higher-quality products implementing projects that required minor investments.
