Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara), the largest chemical complex ever built in a single phase, has successfully started up the kingdom’s first polyols plant.

This manufacturing facility produces specialty chemicals that go into the production of polyurethanes and speciality foams.

The polyols plant is one of the last of Sadara’s 26 chemical facilities to start up. It is also one of Sadara’s 14 facilities that will produce specialty chemicals never before produced in Saudi Arabia.

“The Polyols facility will enable manufacturers in Saudi Arabia to obtain the speciality chemicals needed for a broad spectrum of applications. This will help create new industries domestically and generate job opportunities for the kingdom’s young professionals,” remarked Ziad Al-Labban, CEO, Sadara.

Sadara has two Polyol trains which use propylene oxide and ethylene oxide to produce multiple grades of polyether polyols. The products are used in a broad range of industrial applications, including the production of speciality foams for trim and seating applications.
