Total brings ethane to Antwerp cracker
The French oil company Total has upgraded one of two steam crackers at its site in Antwerp, Belgium, to use ethane as a raw material. Ethane, butane, and naphtha are all now potential feedstocks for the plant, the company says. The upgrade is part of a $60 million project that includes adapting the site’s terminal to import up to 200,000 metric tons of ethane per year by ship from Norway.
