Rotterdam Area

Our sites in the Rotterdam port area belong to the Product Solutions division of ExxonMobil. With the latest technology and innovations, we are always working to renew and make our sites and products more sustainable. We manufacture base products for all kinds of daily products that you encounter in, for example, (electric) cars, hospitals, construction sites, and windmills. The best-known brand names of our products are Esso, Mobil, and Mobil1.

  • The refinery is integrated with the aromatics plant and is one of the most modern and efficient of its kind. The refinery processes various types of crude oil into high-quality base oils for lubricants, chemical raw materials, and fuels.
  • The aromatics plant is one of the largest aromatics producers in the world. The plant is integrated with the refinery, resulting in significant energy and cost savings. We encounter aromatics in, for example, PET bottles and Styrofoam, in electrical (kitchen) equipment, car parts, sports shoes, and synthetic fibers and resins.
  • The oxo alcohol plant is the largest producer of plasticizers in Europe. Plasticizers can be used to make 'hard' plastic soft and pliable. They are used to give flexibility to products such as cables, textiles, floor coverings, furniture, and footwear.
  • The lubricating oil mixing plant in Pernis mixes base oils and additives (additives) into various lubricants. The products vary from solid motor oil to super-refined lubricants, intended for (electric) cars, aircraft, and ships, but also for industrial machines and wind turbines.
