Perstorp back on capacity after explosion

Specialty Chemicals Company Perstorp is now back on full capacity production of its calcium formate Prosid CF30.

It was the dust explosion in the Group's production plant in Bruchhausen, Germany, beginning September 2006 that affected the calcium formate production.

Calcium formate is one of the soluble salts of formic acid. Prosid is a family of feed preservatives that prevent harmful microbial activity in feed and maintain high feed quality during storage.

Some are ideally suited for killing pathogenic bacteria, like salmonella and campylobacter. Others add energy to feed or act as a source of highly digestible calcium.

Thanks to strong efforts from Perstorp employees the plant is now running on full speed.
