Chemoxy International Ltd based on Teesside, UK has completed the first phase of a 20% capacity increase to meet the growing demand for its contract manufacturing services, solvent recovery services and low toxcity solvent range. The recently modified plant comprises a 24m3 reactor in special steel with associated vacuum distillation unit. Ian Stark, Chemoxy’s CEO, commented ‘ It is exciting that we have been able to bring additional capacity on line so soon after becoming an independent company in Jan 2012. The plant was recommissioned on 28th May 2012 and is already operating at design rates. We are experiencing a growth in custom manufacturing requirements and recycling activities. Demand has also grown for our low VOC solvents which comply to the latest low emission regulations in several European countries. We are well advanced in the design of a further capacity expansion which is expected to come on line in Q4 2012.
