Bartek Ingredients completes the first phase of its $160 million malic and fumaric acid capacity expansion. The commissioning and start-up of the company’s new maleic anhydride reactor system, supplied by Man Energy at a cost of $20 million, will add 22,000 metric tons of capacity to Bartek’s existing three maleic anhydride reactors.

“The completion of this milestone is the first major step in Bartek delivering on our malic and fumaric acid capacity expansion project on time,” said Bartek CEO John Burrows. “It reaffirms our global leadership and commitment to deliver these critical food ingredients reliably, consistently, and at the highest quality for years to come. This new facility not only gives us capacity to grow our global acid business, but also additional capabilities to produce our new products like Pecmate sodium malate and other specialty products made with malic and fumaric acid.”
