As the global demand for pentaerythritol ("Penta") keeps growing, Perstorp is increasing the effective annual Penta production capacity at its Bruchhausen/Arnsberg plant in Germany by 12.5 percent. The Penta polyols are widely used in resins for coatings in the building and construction as well as in the steel works industry, from architectural wood to marine paints. "The expansion work at Site Bruchhausen started in June 2018 and is well on track for completion in May," confirms Ulrika Andersson, EVP Business Area Specialty Polyols & Solutions at Perstorp.

Strategic shift from fossil to renewable raw materials

Together with the company’s Stenungsund and Perstorp sites in Sweden, Bruchhausen is now a part of Perstorp’s strategic shift from fossil to renewable raw materials and energy. The independent third-party ISCC certified products comes with a Proof of Sustainability document which states the products contribution to sustainable sourcing according to the certified mass balance system.
