Sabic starts operation at new PP extrusion line in Netherlands
This new extrusion line adopts state-of-the-art process technology to produce Sabic PP products and the next generation PP copolymers.

RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA: Sabic said that it has started up its new polypropylene (PP) extrusion facility in Geleen, Netherlands. This new extrusion line adopts state-of-the-art process technology to produce Sabic PP products and the next generation PP copolymers. Underlines the company’s drive to provide advanced materials that can support customers developing new lightweight applications in industries such as packaging, appliances, automotive, healthcare and help them reduce energy consumption in their process manufacturing.

In line with Sabic’s strategic commitment to customer-driven innovation, this highly automated facility will provide new polymer solutions to meet customer needs for changing market requirements by bringing enhancements in its products by delivering ‘Chemistry that Matters’.

The new PP extrusion facility will be located next to the existing polymerization plant in Geleen where Sabic has a full-scale plant and the global technology centre for Europe. This new investment is an important step in growing and developing the company’s capabilities in the region, where Sabic has solid expertise in polyolefin developments from all aspects: catalyst, process, material and application.

“Our new PP extrusion facility is an excellent example of how Sabic is delivering on its promise to provide customers with advanced material technologies they need to be successful. By providing high- quality, high-performance materials for ever-evolving industry requirements, we are opening up new possibilities and helping our customers reduce energy consumption by lowering processing temperatures and shortening cycle times,” said Sjoerd Zuidema, director of polypropylene business Europe at Sabic.

“At Sabic, we are relentlessly pursuing cutting-edge technologies, both in production and new material development. Our new investment will open up opportunities to create more efficient, higher performing products that can generate sustainable solutions for us and for our customer’s long-term success,” said Lada Kurelec, global business director polypropylene at Sabic.
