MFG Chemical Upgrading 3 DOSS Plants in Georgia

Specialty and custom chemical manufacturer MFG Chemical is in the process of a “multi-million dollar” capital investment project to upgrade its Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate (DOSS) production capabilities at its three facilities in Dalton, GA, the company announced Friday. 

Dubbed “Project Odyssey,” the investment includes improvements to compliance workflows and process safety management systems, new cooling towers for reaction quality control and new DCS process control technology that can automate shutdown processes and remotely activate valves. MFG Chemical will also install new pressure release control valves, safety instrumented systems, and piping to lower the risk of a run-away reaction.

“DOSS is a core chemistry of MFG Chemical, which the company has been producing in large quantities since 1982,” said Joe Welch, director of EHS&S at MFG Chemical, in a statement. “These improvements in manufacturing quality, control, consistency, and efficiency will catapult MFG Chemical into an industry leadership position in the quality, efficiency, and safety of DOSS manufacturing.”

Plans for Project Odyssey were first announced in July 2018, Powder & Bulk Solidsreported. DOSS is used in a wide range of industries and applications, including agricultural, minerals and metals, polymerization, paints and inks, and ethanol. 

MFG Chemical produces DOSS, amides, esters, imidazolines, rheology modifiers surfactants, specialty anhydrides, and water-soluble polymers.
