The first phase of the plant is expected to produce 130,000 tonnes per year of caustic soda for EGA's Al Taweelah alumina refinery and 160,000 tonnes per year of ethylene dichloride.
The first phase of the plant is expected to produce 130,000 tonnes per year of caustic soda for EGA's Al Taweelah alumina refinery and 160,000 tonnes per year of ethylene dichloride. Upon completion of the second phase, caustic soda production capacity will double and the plant will expand operations with vinyl chloride and polyvinyl chloride production.
