DRT, which, since 1932, has specialised in the valorisation of rosin and turpentine extracted from pine resin has announced the acquisition of a new CTO fractionation technology (Crude Tall Oil, co-product deriving from kraft pulping) on its site at Vielle-Saint-Girons, France.

To meet the growing demand of the international markets, DRT has decided to increase its production capacities thanks to a new tall oil fractionation technology.

In accordance with its approach based on the valorisation of co-products deriving from the paper industry, this investment aims at answering the future needs of the adhesive, coating, road marking, chewing gum and synthetic rubber industries.
