THE WOODLANDS, US: Chevron Phillips Chemicals International NV, a wholly-owned affiliate of Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC, is expanding its Tessenderlo sulfur chemicals facility in Belgium. The expansion includes an on-purpose hydrogen sulfide (H2S) unit and additional sulfur-based products capacity to better serve our customers and meet their growing demands. Construction is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2014.

The expansion will allow Chevron Phillips Chemical NV to better serve its worldwide customer portfolio as the demand for synthetic rubbers and plastics increases. Production capacity at the site will increase by more than 40 per cent as a result of this expansion.

“Demand for organosulfur products is expected to continue to grow, particularly for those materials used as chain transfer agents like tertiary dodecyl mercaptan. Chevron Phillips Chemical NV is increasing capacity in order to respond to customer needs throughout the world, especially in Europe and Asia,” said Peter Bastemeijer, Product Line Manager, Specialty Chemicals in Europe, Chevron Phillips Chemicals.
