INEOS Phenol Plans Cumene Facility in Germany by 2020
Posted on : 26 Oct, 2017
World’s largest consumer of cumene, INEOS Phenol has unveiled plans to build a world-scale cumene plant in Germany. Currently, a full study of investment options are being undertaken for the plant, expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
Although INEOS has not yet revealed the capacity and value of investment for the new cumene plant in Germany, it is expecting operations to begin in 2020.
The new cumene plant will ensure steady supply of cumene consumed at its phenol and acetone plants in Gladbeck, Germany, and Antwerp in Belgium.
INEOS already runs a 260,000 tonne/year cumene plant at Marl in Germany and 900,000 tonne/year of cumene capacity in Pasadena, Texas.
Badger’s technology is used at its Texas facility and it will use the firm’s cumene technology for the new plant in Germany.
INEOS also has other expansion plans – a 750,000 tonne/year propylene producing PDH unit – the location for the same is not yet finalised. There are also plans to add 900,000 tonnes/year of ethylene capacity in Grangemouth, UK, and Rafnes in Norway.
INEOS operates phenol, acetone and cumene plants in Germany, Belgium and the US. Its worldwide production capacity for phenol stands at 1.9m tonnes/year, while that for acetone stands at 1.2m tonnes/year and for cumene at 1.3m tonnes/year.
