Sadara Starts Full Scale Operations at its Newly Built TDI Facility

Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara), one of the largest chemical complex ever built in a single phase, has announced the commercial start-up of its toluene di isocyanate (TDI) facility. The production of commercial quantities of TDI marks the full commercial operation of all facilities in the Sadara complex.


Three Integrated Units


Located in the company’s chemical complex in Jubail Industrial City II, the TDI unit consists of three integrated units that will produce:

  • Di nitro toluene (DNT)
  • Toluene di amine (TDA)
  • Toluene di isocyanate (TDI).

Commenting on the occasion, Sadara CEO Ziad Al-Labban said:

“Sadara has come a long way in the last six years, from the signing of the original agreement between our shareholders, Saudi Aramco and The Dow Chemical Company, to Sadara’s official inauguration last November by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, to today’s commercial operation of all plants at the Sadara complex. The petrochemical and chemical products from Sadara will further spur the Kingdom’s industrial growth across multiple sectors, including automotive, construction, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods.”
