Isononyl alcohol

Last month, Dow, Inc. (Midland, Mich.; www.dow.com) and Johnson Matthey (London, U.K.; www.matthey.com) announced that Zibo Qixiang Tengda Chemical Ltd. (QXTD; Linzi district, China; en.qxtdgf.com), has selected LP Oxo Technology to produce isononyl alcohol (INA) at its new manufacturing facility. The plant will be built at QXTD’s integrated petrochemical complex in Zibo City, China and will produce 200,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr) of INA. The plant operation is expected to come online in 2023.

“QXTD will be the first in the industry to take advantage of our process technology for more sustainable INA production,” says Donna Babcock, global business director for Industrial Solutions, a business segment of Dow. “This technology requires a smaller manufacturing footprint and less energy consumption compared to typical INA production processes, without a loss in efficiency and throughput.”

INA is often used to make plasticizers of diisononyl phthalate, diisononyl adipate and triisononyl trimellitate, which are mainly used in the polyvinylchloride industry.
