MOL Group has signed license agreements with Evonik and thyssenkrupp, to produce propylene oxide, a key component for the production of polyether polyols.

MOL Group has entered into key contracts related to core technologies of the Polyol Project, which was announced in 2016 as part of the first investment cycle of the MOL 2030 long-term strategy.

The contracts concern the purchase of technology licenses and process design packages for the so called HPPO (hydrogen peroxide to propylene oxide) technology of propylene oxide production. The licensor of the hydrogen-peroxide unit for captive use is Evonik, while a consortium formed by Evonik and thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions AG licenses the propylene oxide unit.

MOL Group is in the final stages of selecting the licensor for polyether polyol technology as well as the contractor for the engineering of the utilities and other facilities.

In addition, MOL Group has selected Fluor as Project Management Consultant (PMC) for the front-end engineering design and engineering, procurement and construction phases of the project.

These agreements represent the first milestone in the execution of the MOL 2030 long-term strategy, which earmarked around 1.9 billion USD in investments for transformational projects in the area of chemicals and petrochemicals for the period of 2017-2021. The industrial complex, which will be built in Hungary, will be the single largest organic investment project of MOL Group in 2017-2021.
