More commonly known by the tradename Luperox® organic peroxide, those made at the Geneseo site are used to cure boats, tubs, and spas. Others are used to allow plastics to be more easily processed for shaping and in the manufacturing of kitchen countertops. Our plant also produces peroxy-dicarbonates used to make PVC, which is then used to make many familiar products such as vinyl siding and plastic piping. The plant also produces a variety of benzoyl peroxides used in acne medication, whey powder processing, and polystyrene.  The Geneseo site has been operating in this community for more than 60 years.
