Antwerp - INEOS, Europe’s largest petrochemicals company, has announced Antwerp as the location for its new ground breaking 3 billion Euro petrochemical investment.

“The selection of Antwerp as a location for these new assets is a significant step-forward for the development of this project. This decision builds upon our long-standing relationship with the Port of Antwerp, the City of Antwerp, and the governments of Flanders and Belgium,” said John McNally, CEO of the Project said.

The €3 billion investment will be the biggest ever made by INEOS and is first cracker to be built in Europe in 20 years. The investment is a game changer for the chemical sectors and will bring huge benefits to the Belgium and wider European economies. Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Founder and Chairman of INEOS says: “Our investment in a gas cracker and world-scale PDH unit is the largest of its kind in Europe for more than a generation and is an important development for the European petrochemical industry. We believe this investment will reverse years of decline in the sector.”
