International Reach

Production Facilities

Our plants and facilities use process technology from Haldor Topsøe for Synthesis Gas, UOP - DOW for CO2 Removal and Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Japan for the Octanol Plant. The raw materials used for this process are PROPYLENE (Liquid Propylene Gas) and NATURAL GAS. Octanol is produced from Propylene and Synthesis Gas (a mixture of Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen gas) through Aldol Condensation of Butyraldehyde and then followed by Hydrogenation.

Since 2015 start to produce a liquid CO2 by extraction process utilizing flue gas of reformer which rich of CO2, using Union Engineering – Denmark technology. Our CO2 liquid meet with food grade quality standard, and we had obtained FSSC-22.000 by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance on March 2016.

2 Ethyl Hexanol

2EH belongs to the aliphatic alcohol class, which is an organic compound used in the manufacture of various chemical products. 2EH compounds are easy to liquefy at temperature above 6000O C. And often converted to esters for used in various other derivative products, such as plasticizers.
