According to market sources, Saudi Arabian producer SABIC is planning to launch its new PP pilot plant in Sittard-Geleen, the Netherlands to develop new generation PPs. It is expected to start up by the end of March 2017. Sabic’s latest investment in the new pilot plant at Brightlands Chemelot R&D and manufacturing campus in Sittard-Geleen, will lend assistance to other neighboring full-scale plants.

It is reported that gas-phase polymerization technology will be used for the new plant.

“When it starts up next year, we will have considerably more capacity to develop new PP materials for commercialization in our current European assets in Geleen and in Gelsenkirchen, Germany,” Global PP Technology Director, Lina Prada stated.
