Total Petrochemicals Company Profile
Total Petrochemicals is just a small portion of a very large TOTAL. The company is the business unit in charge of the French energy giant's worldwide production of base petrochemicals (olefins and aromatics) and derivatives polyethylene, polypropylene, and styrenics (styrene, polystyrene, and elastomers). Olefins are the basic building blocks of the chemical world, such as ethylene and propylene, and are manufactured primarily from natural gas and naphtha; they are the raw materials used in just about everything else the company makes. The company is invested heavily in Asia through 50-50 joint venture Samsung Total Petrochemicals, which offers Total a gateway into Asia and access to the Chinese market.
