A ‘Verbund’ (production network) is a group of production plants characterized by the cross-processing of raw materials, semi-finished and finished products as well as waste and energy products. This creates a closed raw material cycle with efficiency, volume and cost advantages.

Especially in the processing of our raw-materials, e.g. Crack-C4, it is very important, that we secure a smooth and fast process.

We are able to optimally coordinate and benefit from mutual synergy effects. We have the world’s largest integrated C4-production network, based on state of the art technologies in Marl and Antwerp. In this Verbund, our basic raw material Crack-C4 is further processed in an environmentally compatible and resource-efficient manner.

Our employees in Innovation work hard every day to offer our customers even more efficient and high-quality products. To achieve this, we integrate modern analysis and testing methods into our customer projects.
Particularly remarkable is our unique, highly innovative cleaning process, with which the raw material FCC-C4 can be used for the production of chemicals. This has enabled us to further increase the efficiency and diversity of our value chain.
