INEOS Plans Massive European Expansion Programme
INEOS is looking at sites across Europe including Antwerp in Belgium for its new world scale 750,000 tonne PDH plant. INEOS is planning to increase the capacity of its crackers at Grangemouth in Scotland and Rafnes in Norway to over 1 million tonnes each. With these cracker expansions, INEOS will have added up to 900,000 tonnes of ethylene to its overall production capacity “These are three major new projects”, says Jim Ratcliffe, founder and chairman of INEOS. “Collectively, it’s the equivalent of building a new world scale cracker in Europe”.
