EVONIK IMPROVES RAW MATERIAL SUPPLY VIA FCC-C4

Intelligent production network optimization allows use of an unique raw material from refineries

  • Performance Intermediates produces several thousand metric tons of industrial chemicals such as MTBE, plasticizers and butadiene every day
  • Performance Intermediates is the only producer worldwide who - in addition to applying Steam Cracker based “Crude C4” - can also make use of an unique raw material from refineries: Fluid Catalytic Cracking based “FCC-C4” 
  • Through intelligent production network optimization and a modest capital investment, the business line has increased its processing capacity of FCC-C4 by 25% 
  • This indicates: High investments can be avoided by making smart decisions
