Solvay in JV with Sadara to build plant in Saudi Arabia

July 29/2011

(Plastemart) -- Solvay announced that it plans to create a 50:50 joint venture with Sadara Chemical Company (itself a planned joint venture of Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) and The Dow Chemical Company (Dow)) for the construction and operation of a Hydrogen Peroxide Plant in Jubail industrial City, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Scheduled to be operational in the second half of 2015, this new plant is intended to supply Hydrogen Peroxide (HP) as a raw material for the manufacture of propylene oxide (PO) by Sadara at its world-scale, fully integrated chemicals complex. Propylene oxide is used to produce propylene glycol, polyurethanes and glycol ethers. Solvay will use its proprietary, high-yield hydrogen peroxide technology for the world-scale plant.

Dow and Saudi Aramco announced the planned formation of Sadara on July 25, 2011. Building on Saudi Aramcos project management and execution expertise, and utilizing many of Dows industry leading technologies, the Sadara chemicals complex, comprising 26 manufacturing units, will be one of the worlds largest integrated chemical facilities, and the largest ever built in one single phase.
