It was constructed in 1936 by former mining company Rheinpreussen as the first plant ever to produce synthetic fuels via Fischer-Tropsch-Synthesis. In 1939, focus was switched to producing chemical products, especially oxygenated solvents. During the following decades, Moers site became an important European player in producing solvents and fine chemicals. Our products are synthetic alcohols with custom-made degrees of purity - such as IPA and its derivate DIPE, MEK, SBA, MA, alkoholates and alkyl chlorides, MIPK and ASA. Moers site is connected to its own harbour with storage facilities in Duisburg-Homberg via rail, therefore offering trimodal logistic opportunities.

The former ISP MARL now INEOS Solvents Marl GmbH is located at the Marl Chemical Park. In 1993 the old acetylene plant from 1939 was put out of service, and a new, state-of-the-art acetylene plant was put into operation. In 2007 a new plant for the production of 2-Butenediol (B2D) with a capacity of a 3,500 metric tons per year was put into operation. The plant was running at capacity already in the first year of operation. In the midst of the global financial and economic crisis in 2009, the 2,000,000th metric ton butanediol was produced. ISP Inc. was acquired by Ashland Inc. (ASH) in August 2011. In 2014 a new formaldehyde plant with a capacity of 54,000 metric tons per year was opened at ISP Marl GmbH with the aim to secure the supply of raw materials. In November 2018, INEOS Enterprises announced the completion of the acquisition of the entire composites business of Ashland Global Holdings Inc., including the Ashland production facilities at Marl Chemical Park. Since 1st September the former ISP MARL GmbH is now operating as INEOS Solvents Marl GmbH.
