Nexolub was founded in 2008, but started operating independently as from 2011.  The company was born from an experience in the international trade of Base Oils of more than 20 years.

By consolidating the relationship with our customers and suppliers, we have achieved an exponential growth of our operations, financial and commercial capacity to the point that, as of today, we are one of the main independent exporters of Base Oils from Europe, and one of the main suppliers of Base Oils to Latin America.

Nexolub began its commercial and distribution activity by supplying small quantities of Group I Base Oils from Europe to South America.

As from the year 2015, Nexolub took a new challenge with the addition of new commercial and operations staff, with the intention to expand our commercial activity to Africa, Middle East and Far East. Since then, we have been constantly growing in these markets. Today, we can say that we supply more to Africa, Middle East and Far East than to our traditional American market.

ChainCraft is a leading company in the development of sustainable medium chain fatty acids (MCFA). These C4-C8 fatty acids are produced by upcycling of organic residues (e.g. fruit and vegetable cuttings) via a proprietary fermentation process. With this technology, the company helps to reduce the environmental burdens of waste incineration and landfilling and can also offer a stable supply of  sustainable fatty acids at competitive price levels. These specific fatty acids can be used in a variety of existing and new applications in a.o. animal feed, lubricants, plasticizers, polymers, pesticides and flavors and fragrances. Most important fatty acid in the product range is caproic acid, a unique acid which has traditionally been highly priced and scarcely available.

Since 2019, ChainCraft is operating a commercial demonstration plant with an annual production capacity of 2,000 ton of fatty acids. A full scale flagship plant with an annual capacity of 20,000 ton of MCFA per year is planned for 2025. ChainCraft is actively looking for downstream partners to jointly innovate towards new and improved uses of these fatty acids, such as new polyol ester lubricants.

  • A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
  • Over five and a half hours of networking built into the two day conference agenda including an evening drinks reception
  • A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
  • ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
