As a petrochemical site, INEOS in Cologne is an important supplier of raw materials to various industries. Its main feedstock is naphtha, produced in refineries during the processing of crude oil, delivered to the site by barges on the Rhine River or by pipelines. At the Cologne site, this is used to produce raw materials that serve the chemical industry as basic building blocks for the manufacture of plastics, rubber and fibres. They are also used in solvents and detergents, paints, fertilisers and pesticides, as well as in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

The naphtha is converted into ethylene in two crackers at the Cologne site. This raw material is then used to produce Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), metallocene Linear Low Density Polyethylene (mLLDPE), and several other base chemicals.

The site consists of 21 plants and is connected to three major feedstock and product pipelines. It produces more than five million tons of products per annum, of which 85 per cent are sold in Germany and the BENELUX Countries to nearly 900 customers. 70 per cent of these customers have their companies located in a 200 km “circle” around the site. This means that the site is extremely well located concerning feedstock supplies and transporting of chemicals to customers.

The INEOS Olefins and Polymers Customer Service Centre is also hosted on the site.
