Ineos Nitriles has today announced that it is to re-establish production on its 4th reactor at its Green Lake facility (Texas, USA), re-instating 100kt of capacity.
Despite extremely tough market conditions, INEOS Nitriles is convinced that a combination of long term advantaged US propylene, world leading technology and economies of scale will ensure that Green Lake will be able to compete globally.
Ineos Nitriles operates four plants worldwide, two in North America (Texas & Ohio) and two in Europe (Germany & UK). Green Lake, based in Calhoun County, Texas is one of the largest and most efficient plants in the world. It will once again be capable of producing 545,000 tonnes of Acrylonitrile per year.
As part of this announcement, Ineos Nitriles has also stated that it will invest in the scheduled turnaround on the Seal Sands asset in 2016.
