About This Site
At Marl, INEOS operates a 260,000 te/a Cumene plant on behalf of INEOS Phenol.The INEOS operations are a part of the 650 hectares of the Marl Chemical Park which is located in the northern Ruhr region of Germany. The Marl Chemical Park is the third largest integrated industrial site in Germany and hosts more than twenty differing companies.
Production of Cumene started in 1954. Over the years, the capacity has been increased to today’s level of 260,000 te/a. The raw materials for the plant (Benzene, Propylene) are provided by INEOS Phenol and are shipped to the site via pipeline, barge and railcar. The resulting Cumene is then fed, over a distance of 17 km via pipeline, to our Phenol plant in Gladbeck. At the end of 2016 our Cumene plant in Marl exceeded 15 years of operating without a single lost time injury. Our Marl site complies with all the relevant safety and environmental standards and is certified according to ISO 14001 and ISO 50001.
