SABIC's new catalyst to be used in carpet industry

As a result of its commitment to innovation, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation announces its development of a more advanced technology for the manufacture of polypropylene. This is a fourth generation catalyst which can be used in several vital applications, the most important of which are packaging, carpets, piping, and automotive parts.

This catalyst is a technological breakthrough, being the first of its kind developed in the Gulf and Middle East. Experiments conducted by SABIC at its plants Saudi Arabia and Europe confirm the catalyst's ability to provide impressive results, making it superior to other catalysts currently used in the same area. This discovery will contribute to increased productivity, enhanced quality and new product development. It opens many windows for possible future application.

The new catalyst has been applied commercially in the SABIC affiliate, Saudi European Petrochemical Company, and has demonstrated superiority over the previously used catalyst. By using the catalyst, production reached nearly 30,000 tons of polypropylene as at end of March 2010. This quantity was sold to local and international markets.

Mohamed Al-Mady, SABIC Vice Chairman and CEO praised the dedication of employees at the company's Technology & Innovation division, saying “Your efforts have yielded this milestone, which is in line with the corporate goals and strategic plans of strengthening our position among the world's leading petrochemical companies.” He continued, “I can assure you that SABIC continues to improve its working environment in order to advance innovation and creativity in all the company's sites around the world.”

Mr. Al-Mady added, “This milestone reflects constructive cooperation between SABIC's different sectors working as an integrated team. This will add economic value and strengthen SABIC's competitive position in the polypropylene industry and further its long-term relationships with its customers.”

SABIC, which is the world's sixth largest petrochemical company, is also the world's fourth largest producer of polypropylene.
