Did you know we are world leaders in chemicals?
Chemicals is one of the engines that is driving our internationalization and one of the areas where we are growing the most. All of that is thanks to the full integration with other areas such as refining.
At our chemicals plants we transform crude into end products and raw materials for other industries with no end of applications: next generation plastics, cosmetics, shampoos, biodegradable detergents, paints, electronic components, pharmaceutical products and much more.
WE ARE INTERNATIONAL LEADERS
Our plants in Canada, Brazil and Spain have made us the world leading producer of alkylbenzene, the raw material used to make biodegradable detergents. We are also the leading producer of cumene and the second in phenol and acetone, thanks to our plants in China and Spain.
We sell the solvents produced at our plants in Spain globally. Thanks to our recent expansion in chemicals plants in Indonesia and Germany, through our Sinar Mas Cepsa joint venture, we have diversified our raw materials business to fatty alcohols, a basic ingredient in the production of detergents and personal hygiene products.
