ARLANXEO plans to construct elastomer plant in Saudi Arabia

Source:Adsale Plastics Network 2023-05-31

ARLANXEO announces its planned construction of a world-class rubber facility in Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The 140 kiloton-per-annum (ktpa) plant will produce two high performance elastomers: Ultra High cis Polybutadiene (NdBR) and Lithium Butadiene Rubber (LiBR).


The planned construction follows the final investment decision by Aramco and TotalEnergies to build a world scale petrochemical facility in Saudi Arabia (the ‘Amiral’ complex).


Olivier Thorel, Chairman of ARLANXEO’s Shareholders’ Committee and Senior Vice President of Chemicals at Aramco, said, “The planned construction of a 140 ktpa rubber plant in Saudi Arabia, integrated within SATORP’s Butadiene facility, underscores ARLANXEO’s drive to grow in a competitive market.”

Donald Chen, CEO ARLANXEO, stated, “ARLANXEO is delighted to announce the planned expansion of its asset base to Saudi Arabia. The Project is an important part of our growth plans and is expected to reinforce ARLANXEO’s leadership position in high performance rubbers.”


Engineering, procurement, and construction contracts are scheduled to be awarded in the second half of 2023, with construction expected to commence in 2024, followed by commercial operations in 2027.


NdBR is predominately used in high performance tires, particularly in the tread area, due to its proven ability to improve fuel economy, influence grip and increase tire durability. NdBR is part of ARLANXEO’s sustainability drive. LiBR is mainly used for plastic modification applications to improve the impact resistance of products such as those used in the food packaging and household appliances industry.
