Solvay and Sadara Begin HP Plant's Construction in Saudi Arabia for PO, PO Derivatives and PU Business



Published September 3, 2013
Saudi Hydrogen Peroxide Company, a newly created joint venture between Sadara Chemical Company  and the Solvay Group, recently announced that they have begun constructing one of the world's largest hydrogen peroxide (HP) plants in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The plant will provide a key raw material to Sadara and will strengthen Solvay's global leadership position in HP technology and markets.
With a capacity exceeding 300,000 metric tons per year (MT/yr) and a planned start up in 2015, the mega plant is being built at Sadara's chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City II. It will be the first HP facility in Saudi Arabia.

Sadara will use output from the plant as a raw material for the HP-to-propylene oxide (HPPO) manufacturing plant on the site, thereby supporting its propylene oxide (PO) derivative units that produce polyols and propylene glycol.

For Solvay, this will be its third joint venture mega HP plant following the 230,000 MT/yr plant in Antwerp, Belgium, a JV with The Dow Chemical Company and BASF, and the 330,000 MT/yr mega plant in Map Ta Phut, Thailand, a JV with Dow.
