Antwerp, and by extension Flanders, will greatly benefit from INEOS’ significant investment in Project ONE. The project will further strengthen the future of chemical manufacturing in the region and underpin the existing chemical cluster.
In addition, construction of the site will require approximately 15 million man-hours. Once Project ONE is operational, it will employ approximately 450 people directly. Project ONE’s activities will also create employment indirectly: every direct job on the site will generate ca five additional indirect jobs with third party suppliers, engineering and support services.
It will renew technology at the heart of the European Chemicals sector, breathing new life into manufacturing, bringing jobs back to a closely regulated sector that will play an essential role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions across the continent.
