Excursion to LyondellBasell in Wesseling


In the context of this year’s Advanced Design Project, about 60 participants visited the LyondellBasell Wesseling site on the 27th and 28th February 2024. Apart from the 13 students of the US universities and about 30 students from TU Darmstadt and Provadis Hochschule Frankfurt, some visitors from the research group Busch also joined the excursion.

Participants of the excursion to LyondellBasell Wesseling.

Following the intensive work of the students on the high-density polyethylene (Hostalen) plant of LyondellBasell, the group was invited to visit the Wesseling site. There, LyondellBasell and the department of Dr. Michael Chatterjee presented themselves with information on the Wesseling facilities, their current projects, the individual plants and insights into the working life at the company. Two of the student groups were able to present the results of their planning and optimization to the industry partner. The highlight of the excursion was the visit of the Hostalen plant and the steam cracker in Wesseling.

Many thanks to LyondellBasell for the invitation to Wesseling!
