We are experts in running our integrated C4-based production

Performance Intermediates - About Us - Integrated Producttion

Integrated Production

In Europe, we in Performance Intermediates are leaders in the C4-based chemical field and we have guaranteed the highest product quality for more than 50 years. We have established a cross-site production network which is unique worldwide.

We operate two integrated production sites in Marl, Germany and Antwerp, Belgium

At our two sites in Marl and Antwerp, we operate coordinated and integrated production networks. As the main raw material, crack C4 is present at the beginning of the value chain. This is obtained when crude oil is “cracked.”

We are technology leader in C4-Chemistry

Fabrik Chemie

Our integrated C4-technology platform features excellent exploitation of the raw materials: All the hydrocarbons present in crack C4 are used to create products. This saves resources and increases cost effectiveness. Both production sites were expanded significantly in 2015. In our C4 plant in Marl, we also introduced a new and innovative procedure, which is unique world wide. The technology enables us now to process substance flows from the fluid-catalytic-cracking processes (FCC). With this innovation, we have cemented further our position as technology leader.

Award - FCC C4 - Innovation
And the Evonik Innovation PRIZE goes to...

Thanks to a special purification process Evonik is the only company worldwide that can use FCC C4 from refineries as feedstock for the production of in-demand industrial chemicals. 

The researchers have now been rewarded!
