INEOS Manufacturing Italia is strongly committed to research, innovation and sustainability. We’re continuously committed on developing innovative products, responding to market demands and getting there before our competitors. This commitment also translates in a continual fine-tuning of the production processes in terms of efficiency, performance and safety.
The company’s flagship is FEX (Fabrication Expérimentale), a group resource engaged in defining and implementing corporate research and development plans in the Polyolefins sector. The pilot plant of Rosignano plays a key role in the development of new products and processes, including product simulation experiments prior to their transposition in industrial systems.
Storage is located in Vada, where the ethylene arrives by ship weekly, in a liquid state and at a temperature of -103°. The ethylene is unloaded through a mechanical arm and sent to the storage tank through pipes that go along the full length of the jetty (about 2 km). Before being sent to the production plant, the ethylene is subjected to a vaporisation process.
