On January 9, 2015, DRT, specialized in the valorisation of rosin and turpentine extracted from pine resin since 1932, announced it carries on its investments with the acquisition of a new CTO fractionation technology (Crude Tall Oil, co-product deriving from kraft pulping) on its site of Vielle-Saint-Girons, France.
To meet the growing demand of the international markets, DRT has decided to increase its production capacities thanks to a new tall oil fractionation technology. In accordance with its approach based on the valorisation of co-products deriving from the paper industry, this investment aims at answering the future needs of the adhesive, coating, road marking, chewing-gum and synthetic rubber industries.
This production capacities increase will allow DRT to secure its existing markets. The company will also reinforce its position of global leader and strengthen its privileged relationships with its customers and suppliers.
This new unit will be implemented during 2015’s second semester.
