INEOS Phenol to build a Cumene unit at Marl, Germany

INEOS Phenol has recently announced that it is to build a world scale, state of the art cumene unit in Marl Germany, to be completed in 2021.

The new 750,000-tonne unit will use existing pipeline connections between INEOS’ phenol and acetone production site in Gladbeck, the Evonik Chemiepark in Marl and the BP refinery and cracker complex in Gelsenkirchen. Its location will optimize the efficiency of the plant by integrating raw materials from the refinery and cracker complex. The site also benefits from the Marl harbor waterway connection.

Construction of the plant will support customers’ ambitions and secure the supply of raw material to the INEOS phenol and acetone plants located in Gladbeck and Antwerp for decades to come.
