This is a significant growth project for INEOS. This new range of oxo derivatives complements our existing product offering and builds on our recent acquisition of Oxochimie.

INEOS Oxide is pleased with the speed at which Oxochimie has been fully integrated and we are now looking for the logical next step to grow the business.

The range of products that we are moving into will complement our existing product offerings serving the coatings and lubricants markets.
