Chemicals at Porto Torres

Producing elastomers and chemicals from renewable sources.

New boiler and greater environmental sustainability

At our chemical plant at Porto Torres we have built a new LPG boiler and installed a new smokeless flare. Also under construction at the site is our first ‘chemicals from renewables’ Matrìca plant, a joint venture between Versalis (Eni) and Novamont. The Matrìca plant is the first stage in a major project to convert the industrial site at Porto Torres into an integrated facility. This will produce innovative bioproducts from raw materials of plant origin for many different sectors, using processes with a low environmental impact. The platform consists of three production lines for chemical intermediates from renewable sources and a dedicated Research Centre. The bio-intermediates produced at Porto Torres are derived from vegetable oils and are subsequently used for manufacturing bioplastics, biolubricants and biopharmaceuticals for use in agriculture, healthcare products, additives for the rubber/plastics industry and phytosanitary products.
