Ingevity announces price increase for lignin and tall oil products
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., Aug. 31, 2023 – Ingevity Corporation has announced a 10% price increase to all lignin products across its dispersants business and to all tall oil fatty acid (TOFA), distilled tall oil (DTO) and TOFA derivative products associated with its Industrial Specialties portfolio. Lignin products increases are due to ongoing elevated operational costs associated with the recently announced closure of the host paper mill in North Charleston, South Carolina. TOFA and DTO products increases are due to the continued supply and demand imbalance for tall oil based fatty acids. The increases will be consistent across markets and regions.
New prices will be effective October 1, 2023, or as contracts allow.
