The project aims at establishing a neopentyl glycol plant with a capacity of 45k tpa.
The plant is to be constructed in Jubail Industrial City within Sahara Petrochemicals Company premises. Required feedstocks will be provided through local suppliers where Methanol Chemicals Company (Chemanol) is to supply the project with formaldehyde, one of the main feedstock required for the project.
Neopentyl glycol is used as a raw material in the production of saturated polyester and alkyd resins. Most alkyd resins containing neopentyl glycol are used in coating metal, furniture and fixtures.
