Bartek Ingredients Purchases New State-of-the-Art Maleic Anhydride Reactor
The purchase will expand the company’s maleic anhydride capacity
On the heels of its successful expansion of its malic and fumaric acid finishing capacity earlier in 2019, Bartek Ingredients announced the decision to purchase a 22,000 metric tons/year reactor from MAN Energy Solutions in Deggendorf, Germany.
The reactor will expand the company’s maleic anhydride capacity ahead of anticipated long-term growth in the global acidulants market. It further integrates Bartek’s upstream raw material production with its downstream finishing capacity.
Bartek expects delivery of this new reactor in Q4 2020 with the capacity to be online in Q2 2021.
