The force majeure was initially declared due to a disruption at a raw material supplier’s synthesis gas plant at the end of February 2024

Global chemical company OQ Chemicals has lifted its force majeure declaration for all products from its German plants in Oberhausen and Marl.

This follows the successful resumption of operations earlier this month. All plants are now fully operational and producing at nameplate capacity. During the operational pause, OQ Chemicals implemented strategic enhancements to optimize production processes.

The force majeure was initially declared due to a disruption at a raw material supplier’s synthesis gas plant at the end of February 2024.

The affected products, including Isobutyraldehyde, n-Butyraldehyde, n‑Butanol, i-Butanol, 2-Ethylhexanol, n-Butyl acetate, n-Butylamine (all grades), TCD Alcohol DM, Neopentyl Glycol, n-Propionaldehyde, Isovaleraldehyde, 2‑Methylbutyric acid, 2-Ethylhexanoic acid, n-Butyric acid, Isobutyric acid, Isononanoic acid, Isopentanoic acid, Isovaleric acid, n-Valeric acid, OXSOFT 3G8, and OXFILM 351, are no longer under force majeure.
