INEOS Resumed Acrylonitrile Manufacture at Seal Sands, UK

December 26/2011

(chemmonitor) -- INEOS has restarted acrylonitrile (ACN) production at its 280 metric ton/year facility at Seal Sands, the United Kingdom. The reasons for the delayed restart were labour and weather-related issues.

The plant was initially scheduled to come on stream in November 2011 right after a forty days maintenance, however the restart was suspended by 10 days due to labour problems.

Another 2 weeks delay was the result of high winds in the north of England, the weather issue prevented lifting operations.

The resuming of the plant has started in the mid December 2011, and the facility is now manufacturing acrylonitrile.

INEOS Seal Sands plant is located in Teeside, UK. It is one of the largest manufacturers of Acrylonitrile in Europe and it is the largest producer of purified acetonitrile in Europe. Seal Sands uses leading INEOS technology, which is also used at the Green Lake plant in Port Lavaca, Texas.
INEOS acquired Seal Sands from BASF in 2008.
