Saudi Arabia-based Sadara Chemical Company, the largest chemical complex ever built in a single phase, has announced that it has successfully started up its propylene glycol (PG) plant.PG is a versatile organic compound with a wide range of industrial and consumer applications, including food and flavouring agents, cosmetic products and fragrances, as well as paints and coatings, said a statement from the company.

Sadara CEO Ziad Al Labban noted that the company has started up the majority of its 26 plants located in the company’s chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City 2 in the kingdom’s oil-rich Eastern province.

“We are delighted the plant has gone operational and this marks another significant milestone for us, representing the 22nd of our 26 plants to start up,” added Al Labban.

“Our teams are continuing to push steadily towards full operations. This plant will provide the building blocks for a range of consumer products, which ultimately will be manufactured in the kingdom and thereby create new jobs for Saudi citizens,” he added.

Sadara Chemical Company, established in October 2011, is a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and the Dow Chemical Company of the US.
