Petrochemicals activities comprise the production and marketing of polypropylene, BOPP film and solvents, along with the trade of imported plastics and chemicals.

The Aspropyrgos refinery, through its splitter unit, produces propylene, which covers about 80-85% of the raw material needs of the Thessaloniki polypropylene plant. The  petrochemical plant at the Thessaloniki refinery also produces solvents and minerals, with its output being directed to the domestic and Mediterranean markets.

Based on its financial contribution, the propylene-polypropylene-BOPP value chain represents the main activity for petrochemicals. Export activity is particularly important, as approximately 66% of sales volumes are directed to Turkey, Italy, the Balkans, and the Iberian where they are used as a raw material in a range of manufacturing applications.

DIAXON PLASTIC PACKAGING MATERIALS SA, a subsidiary of HELLENIC PETROLEUM R.S.S.O.P.P., is the only producer in Greece of BOPP film, which is mainly used in the packaging industry. BOPP film sales are directed both to the Greek and the Mediterranean markets.
