Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -


Mas Cepsa has opened its first oleo­chem­i­cals plant in In­done­sia. The plant will pro­duce fatty al­co­hols from sus­tain­ably-sourced palm ker­nel oil-a key in­gre­di­ent in the man­u­fac­ture of ev­ery­day prod­ucts such as house­hold clean­ing goods and per­sonal care prod­ucts.

The Du­mai plant has an an­nual pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity of 160,000 met­ric tonnes of fatty al­co­hol per year. The plant will also ser­vice de­mand from Si­nar Mas Cepsa’s sur­fac­tant plant in Ger­many, which serves mar­kets in East­ern and Western Europe.

Si­nar Mas Cepsa is a wholly-owned joint ven­ture be­tween Cepsa, an in­te­grated en­ergy com­pany and pro­ducer of lin­ear alkyl­ben­zene (LAB) used to make biodegrad­able deter­gents, and Golden Agri-Re­sources, mem­ber of the In­done­sian con­sor­tium of Si­nar Mas busi­nesses and a ver­ti­cally-in­te­grated palm oil com­pany.
