Ineos: Size of Isoamylene Plant Doubled
Ineos Oligomers, a part of Ineos Group Holdings S.A, doubled the size of its Isoamlyene (IA) unit at its site in Cologne, Germany. The unit will exploit the C5 feed on-site integration with the local Cologne crackers, that provides advantages in terms of feed cost and security of supply. These feed advantages, coupled with our proprietary technology and logistics capability, will enable the company to competitively supply IA around the world, according to press information.
Isoamylene is used as a raw material in a wide range of specialty markets including: fragrances, pesticides, peroxides, polymer antioxidants and hydrocarbon resins. In addition to the IA unit, Ineos Oligomers also operates the largest Diisobutylene plant in Europe and a Cyclopentane unit.
