Driving Employee Development
INEOS Olefins & Polymers is staffed with a team of talented and motivated employees - people who are committed to our company values, and who undoubtedly are our greatest asset. They're excited about being part of Team INEOS and about the potential for success we all share.
Developing Sustainable Products and Technologies
INEOS O&P’s goal is to drive sustainability across all aspects of our operations from "cradle-to-grave". We approach this by finding unique ways to reduce the need for hydrocarbon-based raw materials, reducing our reliance on power and natural gas, reducing our emissions, improving the ability to recycle the products we make and by developing products that allow our customers to light-weight their products, thereby reducing their fuel and shipping costs.
Among our initiatives, we have invested in high density polyethylene (HDPE) technology to produce bimodal molecular weight HDPE. This technology provides significant mechanical property improvements that enable light-weighting of bottles, caps, films, and containers while delivering equivalent or improved performance characteristics.
Many of our new developments in polypropylene are focused on high melt rate (low viscosity) products. These products allow our customers to produce thinner walled goods for end uses such as drink cups or food packaging. Such technologies and innovation provide an immediate reduction in the amount of polymer required for the final product, thus driving improved conservation.
Leading Sustainable Operations
Two of INEOS Olefins & Polymers USA's core values are to work safely and operate responsibly. As part of these values we seek to minimize waste, reduce emissions, use energy wisely, and participate in the Circular Economy.
Our environmental and safety management program is grounded in discipline across all levels of our company and is based on the premise of no injuries to people and no harm to the environment. We employ a robust set of metrics and management oversight that includes external assurances around our policies and procedures with daily, weekly and monthly involvement in safety audits, engineering inspections, and process safety management. The Safety and Environment report is the first topic on the agenda of all of O&P’s board meetings.
Leading Chemical and Process Safety
Process safety management is essential to our success and it’s essential to provide a safe environment where our employees can work confidently and safely. We track our progress on process safety related action items to ensure potential hazards are identified and corrected. Additionally, we monitor regulatory and safety requirements for the use and handling of our products and ensure that safety data sheets and regulatory position statements are updated appropriately.
As stewards of the environment we monitor and evaluate ways to reduce emissions to air and water. We continue to look for new ways to reuse scrap product and reduce solid waste from our manufacturing operations.
