Ethanol in the chemical industry

Since the liberalization of the Ethan all market in the mid-1970s, KWST has been selling so-called technical alcohol to various manufacturers in the chemical industry Depending upon the customer specification, the matching grade of ethanol is delivered, mostly in dehydrated form, but also as an azeotropic product. Depending upon the user, various solvents are available for denaturing, such as ethyl acetate, isopropanol, methyl ethyl ketone, tert-Butanol etc. Delivery is usually made in full tankers or rail tank cars. For a relevant need, delivery is also possible via inland vessel.

A key factor for the supply of our customers and partners from the chemical industry is high reliability Thanks to our own plants and the large tank farm. Moreover, our customers benefit from sustainable production, that is confirmed by an official certificate according to ISCC. Our special competitiveness is also a factor of our close proximity to the customer, which affords us outstanding logistical prerequisites (direct access to ship, road, and rail logistics).
