JUBAIL, SAUDI ARABIA: Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara) has announced the startup of its fourth and final polyethylene unit, the high-pressure low-density polyethylene (HP-LDPE) train. This marks a significant milestone for the company as it continues to bring its world-scale manufacturing facilities on stream.
The HP-LDPE train joins the two linear low-density PE trains (PE Trains 1 & 2) and the one elastomers train (PE Train 4), which came on stream over the last 15 months, to complete the company’s plastics plants.
Each of Sadara’s four plastics plants has a world-class capacity and flexible capabilities for producing highly specialised grades of plastic products. PE Trains 1 and 2 produce a wide variety of linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) product grades, while PE Train 4 is the first facility in the Kingdom to produce Elastomers, a very low-density form of polyethylene, and has the flexibility to produce LLDPE as well.
“The successful startup of the fourth and final Sadara Plastics plant is a milestone achievement for the Sadara team and illustrates the results of successful teamwork at both the company and shareholder levels. The products from the Plastics plants will provide feedstocks which will support the development of secondary and tertiary manufacturing investments in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” said Ziad Al-Labban, CEO of Sadara.
