Societe Nationale d'Electrolyse et de Petrochimie (SNEP), part of the Moroccan group YNNA (Chaabi), has chosen Arkema's manufacturing process for its PVC production plant in Mohammedia, near Casablanca.

The Mohammedia industrial site produces chlorine, caustic soda and vinyl chloride monomer. The PVC plant using the Arkema process, scheduled to come on stream at the end of 2010, will have a 150,000 ton annual production capacity essentially earmarked for the Moroccan pipe, profile and cable market.

This licensing agreement includes the use of the Arkema technology, the basic engineering, and the technical support for the plant's startup.

A global chemical company and France's leading chemicals producer, Arkema consists of three strategically related businesses: Vinyl Products, Industrial Chemicals, and Performance Products. Arkema reports sales of 5.7 billion euros. Arkema has 15,200 employees in over 40 countries and six research centers located in France, the United States and Japan. With internationally recognized brands, Arkema holds leadership positions in its principal markets.
