Since 2012, Speichim Processing has teamed up with a major European chemicals partner to purify and sell acetonitrile.
This polar aprotic solvent is used frequently in organic synthesis; it dissolves a wide range of chemical compounds as a result of non-acidic protons in its formula.
Speichim Processing's capacity to store and purify this product enables it to market the solvent as a very high-quality virgin product because it fulfills the specifications of the pharmaceutical industry.
The most common esters (biosourced and non-biosourced) are also available for sale. Most of these esters, which are produced by reactive distillation, are biodegradable and stable and emit low VOCs.
