Day-to-day products

In terms of base petrochemicals, we produce monomers such as ethylenepropylenebenzenebutadiene and other products that form the basis of derivative petrochemicals. Due to the company’s high level of integration, the vast majority of these raw materials are used in the manufacture of derivatives and the rest is sold.  

Our derivative chemicals include intermediate products and polyolefins. Among the former arestyrene, propylene oxide, polyether polyolsandpropylene glycols

Polyolefins, the best-known plastics, offer a broad combination of properties like flexibility, strength, low weight, stability, impermeability and easy sterilisation. This winning combination has led to them becoming the materials of choice in many industries and suitable for a variety of applications.

Providing sustainable solutions

Our production in Europe is centralised in three major petrochemical complexes: two in Spain, situated in Puertollano and Tarragona and one in Portugal in Sines.

It is this integration with the group’s refining and Repsol’s strategy of constantly generating value that has succeeded in securing its customers’ trust, with highly innovative products and services; ensuring a measure of sound business growth in the medium and long term, and marketing its products in more than 95 countries.

Repsol’s Chemicals Division products are used to manufacture everyday articles which improve people’s quality of life, well-being and safety and are found in almost all industrial segments: agriculture, automotive industry, well-being and consumer products, building and infrastructure, packaging, healthcare, and household.
