ROLLE, SWITZERLAND: Ineos Oxide said that it is progressing plans to expand dipropylene glycol (DPG) capacity at its site in Koln, 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.

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.

“This is an important project for Ineos’ propylene oxide and glycol business. We have seen significantly increased demand for DPG from our customers and we are excited to find opportunities to support their growth,” said Santiago Ciruelos, business manager for propylene oxide/propylene gylcols, Ineos Oxide.
