Solvay, Sadara JV to build hydrogen peroxide plant in Saudi Arabia

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM/AL KHOBAR, SAUDI ARABIA: Saudi Hydrogen Peroxide Company, joint venture of Sadara Chemical Company and the Solvay Group, have begun constructing one of the world’s largest hydrogen peroxide 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. The plant expected to start operations in 2015 will have a production capacity exceeding 300,000 metric tonne per year and will be built at Sadara’s chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City II.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Solvay, a global leader in HP, to build this world scale plant to feed our propylene oxide, propylene oxide derivatives and polyurethane business. 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,” said Ziad Al-Labban, CEO, Sadara.
