Processes of Excellence

Licensed from INEOS Chemicals, the CativaTM process is one of the world leading process and ensures minimal environmental impact. The production input and output are as follows:

INEOS PCG Acetyls uses the latest methanol carbonylation technology for producing acetic acid called CativaTM , licensed from INEOS. One of the world’s leading producers and the number one licensor of acetic acid technology, this state of the art process chemically reacts carbon monoxide and methanol chemicals to produce acetic acid.

- CativaTM is particularly recognised for its effectiveness to boost yields and minimised by products.

- CativaTM is used in around a quarter of the world's manufacturing capacity.

- CativaTM has earned the Clean and Efficient Chemical Processing Award in 1999 by the UK Society of Chemistry for its environmental benefits.
