Croda invests in NA lubricant ester production facilities



Published September 14, 2011
Croda Inc has opened its new, state-of-the-art facility for the production of lubricant esters at its Atlas Point manufacturing site in New Castle, DE.

This expansion will enable Croda to better supply its value added technologies to the North American market. The Atlas Point manufacturing site will now be able to manufacture lubricant quality esters, targeting growth in high end lubricant applications, which are being driven by increasing market demands for improvements in fuel economy and sustainability. Food-grade esters for lubricant base fluids and additives will be supplied in addition to water-soluble lubricity additives for stamping and drawing lubricants. A further advantage is that the expansion will facilitate the manufacture of new innovations for the marketplace.

This investment improves the ester capacity at Croda by 15 percent, specifically allowing the company to manufacture various grades for the lubricant ester market.
