Pyrolysis oil used for certified circular polymers / Production in Saudi Arabia said to be first in MENA

Sabic said its Saudi-based Petrokemya subsidiary in Jubail made the polymers with pyrolysis oil supplied by Saudi Aramco (Dhahran; and TotalEnergies (Paris; manufactured at their Satorp refinery, also in Jubail.

Sabic said the project is a step toward creating a domestic value chain for advanced recycling of plastics to circular polymers in Saudi Arabia. The process allows the use of non-sorted plastics, which can be difficult to recycle mechanically, and consequently contributes to solving the challenge of end-of-life plastics, it explained.
