Kolb Expands Production in Moerdijk
A fourth reactor for the production of alkoxylates has been commissioned at chemical company Kolb's Dutch site in Moerdijk. As a result, Kolb Moerdijk is one of the biggest sites producing alkoxylates and non-ionic surfactants in Europe.
In addition, four new storage tanks have been constructed. This will enable a significant increase in the supply of fatty alcohols into Europe from its Malaysia-based parent company KLK.
The expansion has created 10 new jobs, increasing the total number of employees at the site to 80.
The expansion of production in Moerdijk is one of Kolb's biggest projects in recent years. In 2008, the capacity was expanded with a third reactor.
