PRAGUE (ICIS)--Poland-based chemical company PCC Exol expects full product availability at its new 30,000 tonnes/year ethoxylation plant in Plock to start from the end of March, the company said on Friday.

“PCC Exol has started up [its] ethoxylation plant successfully,” the company said in a statement. “The plant at the time being is still in a testing phase. However, samples and product for industrial trials is available. The full product availability is expected at the end of March 2011.”

In December 2010, PCC Exol said difficult weather conditions had delayed the start-up of the plant, located 100km (62 miles) northwest of Warsaw.

The facility produces ethoxylates, categorised as non-ionic surfactants. Ethoxylates are surface-active substances used as intermediary products for the manufacture of household chemicals and cosmetics.
Germany’s PCC owns PCC Exol through its 100%-owned Polish subsidiary PCC Rokita, which is Poland's only surfactants manufacturer.

PCC Exol already runs one 30,000 tonnes/year ethoxylation plant at the location, along with two sulphonation plants, with a combined capacity of 40,000 tonnes/year of anionic surfactants.
