Kalama® Benzaldehyde FCC

Kalama® Benzaldehyde is the simplest and quite possibly the most industrially useful aromatic aldehyde. While benzaldehyde exists in nature (in almonds, peaches, cherries, and apricots), commercially available benzaldehyde is produced industrially by either of two different synthetic processes. We produce benzaldehyde using the toluene oxidation process in the largest benzaldehyde plant in the world in Rotterdam and our world-scale operation in Kalama, WA, USA. As a result of this, our benzaldehyde contains no chlorine. Our global leading position as benzaldehyde producer enables us to set the standard for quality, reliability and security of supply.
