Ineos expands capacity for ethylidene norborene at Antwerp site

Mary Page Bailey

Ineos Technologies’ (Rolle, Switzerland; www.ineos.com) Ineos Oxide has expanded its ethylidene norbornene (ENB) plant at its Antwerp facility, increasing its capacity to 28,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr), making it the single largest ENB plant in the world, according to the company.
 
ENB is used primarily in the production of ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM). Because it is extremely wear- and weather-resistant, this high performance rubber is increasingly favored for use in the automotive and construction industries.  Its unique molecular structure means ENB is also used in the high value fragrance and flavours industry as a scent carrier.
