This process of preparation on large scale is based on a unique and differentiating expertise of Olon, that has an outstanding skill on this specific synthetic process. The improvement of the plant will boost a significant increasing of the site reaction capacity. It will imply the installation of several new equipment’s, as reactors, filters, refrigerator, revamping raw material device.
