VeryOne inherits centuries of nitration experience developed for the French Defense.
In 1984, SNPE identified a growing potential demand for a nitrated diesel fuel Cetane Improver. As a global leader in the field of nitration, SNPE began manufacturing Cetane Improver in its Sorgues (France) production facility.
Capitalizing on its extensive experience in alcohol nitration, coupled with vast expertise in the manufacturing of explosives, SNPE developed its own specific production process to safely produce Cetane Improver, also known as 2-Ethylhexyl Nitrate (2-EHN).
In 1997, SNPE introduced a second production unit, and began the construction of waste acid recycling units on-site to improve production flexibility, while considerably reducing the siteâ€™s environmental impact.
More than 15 years later, SNPE is the worldâ€™s leading manufacturer of 2-EHN. The production of Cetane Improver has become a fully integrated and vital part of the Sorgues manufacturing complex, and EURENCO (100% Groupe SNPE) continues to introduce significant production improvements while progressively increasing its manufacturing capacities.
In June 2011, EURENCO began direct marketing and sales of Cetane Improver in North America through its Houston (Texas) office.
Dedicated to providing outstanding customer service, EURENCO arranges efficient storage and distribution channels all over the world, to ensure available supply and prompt delivery.
Today, we look back at more than 1 million ton of production and sales, and aspire to serve global customers, large and small, well into the 21st century.
