Process & Product development

Performance Intermediates - About Us - Process & Product Development

To ensure sustainability for our customers, we focus our efforts on optimizing processes, developing new products and supporting specific customer projects with our technical expertise.


WE HAVE A STRONG TECHNOLOGY POSITION

Process Product Development
Our networked production enables us to obtain almost 100-per cent value generation from our raw materials.
In order to increase the value, the efficiency and the sustainability of the C4 process chain even further, we continue to develop our procedures. As the industry leader in this area, we employ approx. 70 experts for hydroformylation, oligomerization and esterification.
We generate approx. two thirds of our current product sales on the basis of our in-house developments. This also includes diversification of our plasticizer portfolio to incorporate non-phthalate variants. We protect this know-how with more than 240 active patents and patent applications.

WE OPERATE HIGHLY MODERN APPLICATION LABORATORIES
