Ineos announces range of bio-attributed olefins and polyolefins

October 23/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- INEOS Olefins & Polymers Europe has announced a range of bio-attributed olefins and polyolefins, based on renewable bio based raw materials that do not compete with food production, according to Kemicalinfo

Products will be supplied from the INEOS Koln site, Germany, later this year.

The company stated that bio-attribution measures the extent to which fossil fuel-derived feedstocks have been substituted by renewable or bio-feedstocks. Each step in the supply chain has been fully certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) to track the renewable materials through the production system as they are converted into drop-in olefin and polyolefins. The final product carries an attribution according to the displacement of fossil fuel-derived raw materials.
The RSB process also tracks and measures the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Saving through the Lifecyle of the product. The INEOS bio-attributed polyolefins can be made with 100% substitution of bio-feedstock and provide more than 100% Greenhouse Gas savings (GHG). The results are products which have a proven positive impact on the environment without sacrificing any product performance.

RSB is an independent organisation that has built a stringent certification process to help drive the sustainable development of the bio-economy.

Liz Rittweger, Business Director for Olefins and Polymers, "We are very proud to have achieved RSB certification of Olefins and Polyolefins from our Koln site.  Being able to offer Bio-Attributed Olefins and Polymers represents another concrete step for INEOS along the path towards a more circular and sustainable economy."

We remind that, as MRC wrote before, in September 2019, INEOS Phenol broke ground at its world scale cumene investment in Marl, Germany. The new state-of-the-art 750 000 t unit is scheduled to be completed in 2021. Its location will help optimise the efficiency of the plant by integrating raw materials from the refinery and cracker complex. The site also benefits from the Marl harbour waterway connection.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polyprolypele (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,436,390 tonnes in the first eight months of 2019, up by 9% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. At the same time, the PP consumption in the Russian market was 909,260 tonnes in
