The expansion will increase the 2-EH facility's capacity to approximately 37,000t per annum. Eastman Chemical Oxo and Plasticisers business performance chemicals and intermediates segment director Heidi Barnes said, "The added capacity reinforces our commitment to reliably supply our 2-EH customers, while also supporting growth in our plasticiser business for products like Eastman 168 non-phthalate plasticiser."
