What do we Produce ?
CEPSA Química Bécancour has a production capacity of 120,000 MT of linear alkylbenzene (LAB) per year. Linear alkylbenzene is a component used in the production of detergents. It is produced from benzene and normal paraffins. It is a transparent and odourless liquid.
Linear alkylbenzene is the raw material used in the production of linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (LAS), a surfactant used primarily in detergents. It eliminates dirt through its physico-chemical properties and it is one of the surfactants most widely used in liquid and powder detergents.
LAS has been used worldwide for more than 30 years and is recognized for its excellent quality/price ratio.
Linear alkylbenzene and linear alkylbenzene sulfonate are entirely biodegradable and do not accumulate in the environment.
