The ORLEN Unipetrol Group is the largest refining and petrochemical company in the Czech Republic. It focuses on crude oil processing and the production, distribution and sale of vehicle fuels and petrochemical products – particularly plastics and fertilisers. It belongs among the critical players in the Czech republic and Central European markets in all these areas. The ORLEN Unipetrol Group encompasses refineries and production plants in Litvínov and Kralupy nad Vltavou, Paramo in Pardubice, Spolana Neratovice, and two research centres in Litvínov and Brno. Unipetrol also includes a network of ORLEN Benzina filling stations in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. With 430 filling stations, ORLEN Benzina is the largest chain in the Czech Republic. Since its entry to Slovakia in 2019, ORLEN Benzina has been one of the fastest growing chains and currently operates 27 filling stations. ORLEN Unipetrol employs nearly 5,000 people and is one of the largest companies in the Czech Republic. In 2005, ORLEN Unipetrol became a member of the ORLEN Group, the largest crude oil processor in Central Europe. The ORLEN Unipetrol is also active in corporate social responsibility. Therefore, it pays equal attention to initiatives focusing on cultivating and supporting sustainable development, education, local communities, and the environment.
The company mainly supplies the market with motor fuels, heating oils, asphalts, liquefied petroleum products, oil hydrogenates, other refinery products, olefins and aromatics, agrochemicals, carbon black and sorbents, polyolefins (high-density polyethylene, polypropylene).
Thanks to the new PE3 unit, put into official operation in 2020, ORLEN Unipetrol produces new white polyethylene (so-called Natural line) and black polyethylene (so-called Black line, or black pipe types). The total production capacity of the Litvínov petrochemical plant thus increased from 320 to 470 thousand tons of polyethylene per year.

“Let’s talk about it” is a space for discussion about upcoming changes aimed toward the transition to a circular economy and their anticipated effects on producers and consumers alike. More and more we’re noticing that existing models are not sustainable, which is why we must work together to innovate and build new structures. A change of such magnitude requires us to hold sensible discussions, explore creative solutions and cooperate at all levels. “Let’s talk about it” provides the space to do so.
The series is moderated by Dr. Michael Londesborough, a British born scientist and researcher at the Czech Academy of Sciences in Řež since 2002. He is also chairman of the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry Research Board and member of the Science Popularization Board. He has authored and coauthored numerous research papers, lectured at many international conferences and holds one national patent. In addition to a myriad of awards, he’s also received the Vojtěch Náprstek Honorary Medal for Merit in Science Popularisation. Since 2017, he’s been the brand ambassador for ORLEN Unipetrol.
Dive in and take an in-depth look at effective plastic recycling strategies and changing government, producer and consumer attitudes toward sustainable solutions. Promising technologies, expert recommendations to the European Union and planned economic changes- all this and more awaits.
In addition to taped guest interviews, LTAI brings accompanying articles, recommended readings and discussions with other fans of the show. Watch, read, listen and join the discussion. Let’s talk about it!
