The Sadara JV of state petroleum firm Saudi Aramco and US firm Dow Chemical has announced the production of commercial quantities of on-specification liquid polymeric methylene diphenyl diisocayanate (PMDI) and butyl glycidil ether (BGE) – both new products to Saudi Arabia.
The key PMDI plant is the Middle East’s first to manufacture a chemical used in producing polyurethanes – an in-demand product giving access for the first time to a group of chemicals whose use is growing rapidly in the global automotive and other markets.
The BGE unit produces a range of liquids with a range of applications including the production of industrial solvents, plasticizers and crop protection chemicals. Sadara says that the financial impact of the two new units will be seen in its Q2 results.
