Solvay builds new hydrogen peroxide plant in Saudi Arabia to meet global demand

Propylene oxide (PO) is the main component in the production of polyurethane foam, which is widely used in rapidly growing applications. Therefore, the global demand for PO is increasing, and the demand for hydrogen peroxide for PO production is also increasing. As a technology leader with a rich portfolio of hydrogen peroxide products, Solvay is working with its PO customers to build new factories where needed and increase new production capacity. The new large-scale HPPO plant in Jubail, Saudi Arabia, will help further develop its peroxide business in the Middle East. The large HPPO plant in Jubail is owned by SHPCo, which is a joint venture between Solvay and Sadara. From 2008 to 2016, Solvay’s Peroxide Division doubled its production capacity and built three high-productivity plants in Antwerp (Belgium), Map Ta Phut (Thailand) and Jubail (Saudi Arabia). Technical hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) large-scale factory. Major PO producers such as BASF and Dow Chemical rely on Solvay's expertise to produce high-quality hydrogen peroxide because it is one of the two key raw materials in the PO production process: it converts propylene to propylene oxide的oxidant. The use of H2O2 as an oxidant, instead of other options, significantly reduces the by-products produced in the PO production process. PO demand growth Propylene oxide is the raw material for many downstream products, such as polyols and diols, and the production of polyurethane (PU) at the end of the chain. Polyurethane foam has excellent insulation properties, and many industries have adopted more energy-efficient technologies, which has led to increased demand. Polyurethane applications are suitable for various industries, and applications in all industries are increasing, especially for housing, automobiles, furniture and mattress insulation materials. The demand for insulation materials in the housing market and European energy efficiency regulations are driving the use of polyurethane foam in the construction industry. Lightweight car seats in the automotive market are also a huge driving force for growth. Over time, the density of polyurethane has decreased by 30% to 40% while maintaining the same mechanical properties. For example, among the plastics used in automobiles, seat foam has the lowest density. Household products such as mattresses and sofas are also important application areas of PU foam. Polyurethane foam meets the needs of the emerging middle class in Asia and Africa. At the same time, opening up new H2O2 markets in the Middle East, Europe, Middle East and Africa Export Manager Elisabetta Renni explained: 'In Saudi Arabia, product availability is an important lever for Solvay to further develop hydrogen peroxide sales in the country and the region. The next goal is to fully develop peroxide applications and win potential customers.' In Middle Eastern countries such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, Solvay peroxide has good growth prospects and business opportunities. Therefore, a new sales team has been established to strengthen the business capabilities of the Middle East team. Georges Crauser, President of Solvay Peroxides Global Business Unit, emphasized: 'As a global leader in the field of hydrogen peroxide, through this large factory, we are strengthening our market presence in the region, getting closer to our customers and fulfilling Our growth commitment.'
