7 April 2015

Cepsa's chemical plant in Shanghai will be inaugurated on 28 April 2015. The plant has been one of the biggest projects in Cepsa's history and is part of the international growth and expansion strategy that it has carried out.

Cepsa's Chairman HE Khadem Al Qubaisi, said: “The opening of this new plant is the culmination of one of the central projects in the Company´s Strategic Plan, which is to grow the chemical business, with a particular focus in Asia”.

“The construction project and start-up of this new plant underlines IPIC´s commitment to Cepsa's international growth plans,” Cepsa´s Chairman added.

The construction of the new plant began in April 2011, and will help to make Cepsa Química's production more flexible with facilities in both Spain and China, as well as consolidating its global position in the petrochemicals market.

Cepsa's new plant, which is located on Shanghai´s Chemical Industrial Park, will have a production capacity of 250,000 mtpa of phenol, and 150,000 mtpa of acetone. The installations will make Cepsa the world's second biggest phenol and acetone producer.

Phenol is a raw material with multiple uses across various sectors, from construction to automobiles, and pharmaceuticals. It is used in the production of automobile dashboards, insulation, a huge range of plastics, CDs, bike helmets, wind turbines, solar panels, aspirins and more. Acetone is a bi-product of phenol which works as an excellent thinner for natural and synthetic oils, as well as in the production of resins, rubbers, paint, varnishes and inks, although its most important use is in the production of methyl methacrylate.
