ABOUT VYNOVA BEEK

In Beek, we produce suspension PVC (S-PVC) through a process of polymerisation. During this process, vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) is polymerised in the presence of water and additives. The polymerisation takes place in 20 reactors, distributed along 4 production lines.

This set-up gives the Beek plant a high level of flexibility to produce all grades of PVC, a high-quality material that our customers convert into a wide range of products for daily life.

The VCM used in Beek is produced at the Vynova site in Tessenderlo (Belgium) and transported by pipeline to our plant. The Beek site is very well located with excellent access to logistic facilities and export markets.

Vynova Beek is based at the Chemelot Industrial Park, a chemical innovation community housing dozens of companies. The Chemelot businesses are diverse, but all have one thing in common: they are part of the Chemelot community and behave accordingly. 

The community is open to the idea of continuous innovation in technology, products, applications, production processes, business models and organisation forms. This continuous improvement mindset is realized in cooperation with, and with the help of, other companies.

The Chemelot community provides a wide range of facilities and services to Vynova Beek. These include a dedicated fire brigade and security services, along with Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) services. Chemelot also houses a biological wastewater treatment plant and on-site electrical power supply.

As a responsible manufacturer, Vynova Beek is certified for the ISO 9001 quality management standards and the ISO 14001 standards for environmental management.
