Sadara Chemical Co. (a joint venture developed by Saudi Aramco and the Dow Chemical Company) has confirmed that it has successfully started up its propylene glycol (PG) plant.
PG is a versatile organic compound with a wide range of industrial and consumer applications. PG derivatives are also used in the production of other chemicals such as mono propylene glycol, di propylene glycol and tri propylene glycol.
Sadara has now started up the majority of the 26 plants located in its chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City II.
Sadara CEO, Ziad Al-Labban, said: “This marks another significant milestone for Sadara, representing the 22nd of our 26 plants to start up. Our teams are continuing to push steadily towards full operations. This plant will provide the building blocks for a range of consumer products, which ultimately will be manufactured in the Kingdom and will therefore create new jobs for Saudi citizens.”
