Ineos O&P Europe announces €30m upgrade of Lillo polyolefins plant
publié le dimanche 30 octobre 2022
Ineos O&P Europe has announced today a €30m investment in the conversion of its plant in Lillo, at the Port of Antwerp, to enable its existing capacity to produce either monomodal or bi-modal grades of high-density polyethylene (HDPE). This will allow the company to meet the strong demand for durable high-end applications such as cable ducts and pipes used to transport green energy sources such as renewable power and hydrogen, whilst enabling the business to follow market trends as society reduces single use packaging. HDPE is a key building block for producing a wide variety of goods, including many of those that will play an essential role in the transition to net zero. The unique combination of properties offered by Ineos’ bimodal HDPE polymers means many of these products can be installed and operated safely for at least 50 years. Ineos combines with recycled plastic waste to form the Recycl-IN range, which enables converters and brand owners to produce products that meet consumer demands for increased use of recycled materials while continuing to deliver the high-performance specifications they expect.
