Ferro Corp. recently announced it will add significantly to its plasticizer product offerings by installing new dibenzoates production capability at its Antwerp, Belgium, operations. The project is designed to provide annual production capacity of 28,000 metric tons of dibenzoates, a non-phthalate, fast-fusing plasticizer. Production at the facility is expected to begin in the second half of 2014.

The company reportedly expects to significantly strengthen its market position through this project, offering high-performance plasticizers for a range of markets and applications to customers preferring a non-phthalate solution. This project includes the installation of technologies to produce benzoic acid, which will reportedly allow Ferro to be fully backward-integrated into this key raw material at the Antwerp facility.
