Antioxidant feedstock plant doubled

Ineos Oligomers has doubled the size of its Isoamlyene (IA) unit at the Ineos site in Cologne, Germany. “This expansion cements our position as a world scale producer of IA,” stated Bob Learman, CEO. “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 excellent logistics capability, will enable us to competitively supply IA around the world,” he emphasised.

“This expansion will enable us to keep pace with the long term growth of IA consumption anticipated by our customers” commented Joe Walton, Business Director. “Isoamylene is used as a raw material in a wide range of specialty markets including: fragrances, pesticides, peroxides, polymer antioxidants and hydrocarbon resins,” he added.

The expansion was done during a recent five week turnaround at the unit. In addition to the IA unit, Ineos also operates on site the largest Diisobutylene plant in Europe and a Cyclopentane unit.
