Ineos Oxide announced that it is progressing plans to expand Dipropylene Glycol (DPG) capacity at its site in Köln Germany.

Cologne/Germany — The company confirmed that it has started the Front End Engineering Design (Feed) and expects to complete the engineering studies during the course of 2018. Currently construction of the plant is expected to start in 2019 with start-up planned for early 2020.

Because of the significantly increased demand for DPG from their customers, this was an important project for Ineos’ propylene oxide and glycol business, commented Santiago Ciruelos, Business Manager for Propylene Oxide/Propylene Gylcols.

Dipropylene glycol is used as a solvent and scent carrier in the fragrance and laundry industries, as well as a component of speciality plasticisers and unsaturated polyester resins. Ineos manufacture DPG today as part of its propylene oxide and glycol portfolio.
