Author: ChemistryViews

SABIC has signed an agreement with Lurgi GmbH for the technology licensing and engineering that allows them to produce oleo-chemicals at its affiliate, Saudi Kayan Petrochemical Co., following the completion of new facilities to be constructed in Jubail, Saudi Arabia in 2013.

The new oleo-chemical plant, designed for the production of 83,000 t/a of distilled natural alcohols from renewable oils such as palm kernel oil and coconut oil, will be the first of its type in the Middle East. It includes an upstream natural acid unit, a wax-ester unit, a hydrogenation unit, a downstream natural alcohol fractionation and distillation line, as well as a complete glycerine line.
