Products/Services at the Rhineland sites

Polyethylene and polypropylene are produced in six production plants at the Wesseling site.
They are processed into fuel tanks, pipes, bottles and foils, or for medical applications and other everyday objects. The production of granules requires hydrocarbons (e.g. ethylene and propylene) as precursors, which are produced at two on-site crackers.

The Hürth-Knapsack site produces polypropylene, which is used for bottles and other household items. These plastics are processed into polypropylene compounds in a downstream plant and used as body parts or interior components in the automotive industry.
