Oxiteno nears completion of Pasadena alkoxylation plant

By Mary Page Bailey |

Oxiteno’s (São Paulo, Brazil; www.oxiteno.com) new alkoxylation plant in Pasadena, Texas approaches its final phase of completion and is scheduled to startup in the beginning of 2018. With 170,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of capacity, the new unit utilizes an innovative alkoxylation system with the highest standard of safety and flexibility to produce a broad range of specialty surfactants, such as kosher polysorbates, amine and alcohol ethoxylates, EO/PO products, sodium isethionate, high molecular weight PEGs, and much more. 

The new unit is strategically located in the U.S. Gulf Coast and will create more than 100 direct jobs. Along with the main office in Houston, TX and R&D center in Hattiesburg, MS, the new plant will serve North American customers nationwide through different channels and with a specialized portfolio of products for Home and I&I, Personal Care, Agrochemicals, Oilfield Chemicals, Performance Products and several other industrial markets.
