Al Khobar/Saudi Arabia – The new mega plant with a capacity exceeding 300.000 tons/year is currently under construction at Sadara's chemical complex in Jubail. Upon completion in 2015, it will provide hydrogen peroxide as a key material to Sadara assets at the site, supporting the company's propylene oxide business. For Solvay, it is the third joint venture mega hydrogen peroxide plant following a 230,000 tons per year facility in Antwerp, Belgium, in a joint venture with Dow and BASF, and another 330,000 tons per year mega plant in Map Ta Phut, Thailand, with Dow.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Solvay, a global leader in HP, to build this world scale plant to feed our PO, PO derivatives and Polyurethane business," said Ziad Al-Labban, CEO of Sadara. "This partnership will provide us with a stable and reliable supply of a key raw material which is critical to support our Polyurethane-based customers and downstream value chains."The new plant is the hydrogen peroxide production in Saudi Arabia and considered a valueable supplement to the Sadara complex.
