Solenis signs distribution agreement with German producer of oleochemical additives

June 30/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Solenis (Wilmington, Delaware) says it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Peter Greven (Euskirchen, Germany), a leading manufacturer of oleochemical additives, said Chemweek.

Under the terms of the agreement, Solenis will be the authorized distributor for Peter Greven's calcium stearate dispersions for paper coating applications in the EU, UK, and Russia, effective immediately.

"Calcium stearates are used in paper coating formulations, mainly in printing grades, as lubricants to facilitate the process of coating the paper," says Jose Santolaya, director/product management, EMEA at Solenis.

"The cooperation will strengthen both Peter Greven's and Solenis's market position in the paper industry," says Peter Greven, managing director at Peter Greven.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 721,290 tonnes in the first four month of 2020, up by 4% year on year. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) shipments grew partially because of the increased capacity utilisation at ZapSibNeftekhim.  At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 347,440 tonnes in January-April 2020 (calculated by the formula production minus export plus import). Supply exclusively of PP random copolymer increased.
