ExxonMobil Chemical Company is making it’s most expensive investment in the United States, ever, with its expansion of the Baytown plant. ExxonMobil is installing one of the largest steam crackers in the world at Baytown, making it the largest producer of ethylene for the company. Steam cracking is used to break petroleum down into more useful elements for humans.
ExxonMobil is also adding two new units to the Mont Belvieu plastics plant. Texas will become ExxonMobil’s largest polyethylene supply point in the world when that project is finished. This capacity increase will help ExxonMobil meet the rapidly growing global demand for high-value polyethylene products.
