INEOS O&P Europe announces €30m upgrade at Lillo polyolefins plant

INEOS Europe has announced a €30 million investment in the conversion of its plant in Lillo at the Port of Antwerp.
This is to enable its existing capacity to produce either monomodal or bi-modal grades of high-density polyethylene (HDPE).
This will allow INEOS 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.
INEOS will use its proprietary technology to build on its leading position as a supplier to the high[1]density pressure pipe market, working with customers to supply key regions and segments such as drinking water, gas, sewage and industrial applications including geothermal and biogas.
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.
They also offer more efficient, lower emission solutions for transporting important utilities and goods around Europe’s cities.
Rob Ingram, CEO, INEOS O&P Europe North, said: “This investment will enable our business to support the growing use of products that play a key role in the transition to net-zero, as well as other uses essential to homes and businesses.
“The Lillo investment also shows our commitment to helping to create a thriving circular economy. Our Recycl-IN polymer range gives our customers the quality and confidence they need to help them to increase the use of recycling materials.”
