OMV is adding high-purity isobutene production at its Burghausen refinery.

The Austrian oil and gas firm OMV will spend about $72 million to build a high-purity isobutene plant at its refinery in Burghausen, Germany. To open in September 2020 with a capacity of around 60,000 metric tons per year, the facility will use a catalyst from BASF and heat-integration technology developed jointly by OMV and BASF. OMV says the facility continues the firm’s move away from refining and into chemicals.
