We build the Future
From energy efficient houses to electronics, smart clothing, aviation and even space travel, petrochemicals are at the heart of innovation that is shaping tomorrow’s world.
Petrochemicals in Action
Petrochemistry has done wonders in the fields of transport, hygiene, housing and technology, making our lives far easier than they have ever been in the previous centuries.
Chemistry is all about you
Showing the way to sustainable industry today
With Project ONE, Petrochemicals Europe member INEOS is bringing one of Europe’s most energy-efficient and technologically-advanced chemical complexes for the production of ethylene and propylene (olefins) to the Port of Antwerp.

Solvents – a key ingredient of durable and sustainable materials
When you see solar panels or bridges you probably don’t think that solvents play a big role in making and protecting them. Yet they do. Solvents are essential to glue solar panels together. Coatings with solvents protect infrastructure like bridges and dams from corrosion and rust, extending their lifetime by decades.
Experts from across the propylene, ethylene and butadiene value chains will meet to explore the changing market dynamics and delve into the challenges being created by the tighter cracker margins caused by the global energy crisis.
