This benefits the community it serves by driving cleaner, quieter and more efficient fleets.

LyondellBasell has announced plans to expand triethylene glycol (TEG) production capacity at its existing ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol plant in Pasadena, Texas.

It is expected to be one of the world’s largest on purpose TEG production units, meaning the TEG is produced by design and not as a by product of another manufacturing process.
