Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

The new plant lo­cated in the Chemiepark Marl will sup­port cus­tomer de­mand and en­sure se­cu­rity of sup­ply for Ineos plants in Glad­beck and An­twerp. It will use ex­ist­ing pipe­line con­nec­tions be­tween the com­pany’s Phenol & Ace­tone pro­duc­tion site in Glad­beck, and the Evonik Chemiepark site in Marl. It will also link into the BP re­fin­ery and cracker com­plex in Gelsenkirchen, mak­ing it a fully in­te­grated fa­cil­ity.

Its lo­ca­tion and con­nec­tions will al­low the plant to be highly ef­fi­cient, with raw ma­te­rial in­te­gra­tion into the re­fin­ery and cracker com­plex, and ac­cess to the Marl har­bor in­land water­way con­nec­tion, the com­pany an­nounced.

Ineos Phenol is the world largest pro­ducer of phenol and ace­tone and the largest con­sumer of cumene, which is an es­sen­tial raw ma­te­rial. Hans Casier, CEO of Ineos Phenol, said that the Marl Chemiepark has been se­lected as the best lo­ca­tion to build a state-of-the-art, world-scale Cumene unit with ex­cel­lent lo­gis­tics that would un­der­pin our phenol and ace­tone sites in Europe. The new plant will be an in­te­gral part of the north­ern Ruhr area Ver­bund struc­ture.
