Aim for the Chlor Alkali, EDC and PVC plant at TA’ZIZ industrial chemicals zone

The Chlor Alkali, EDC and PVC plant at TA’ZIZ industrial chemicals zone aims to become the main supplier to local manufacturers for chemical products. The project also plans to export its products to meet the ever-growing global demand. 

The acting CEO of TA’ZIZ, Khaleefa Yousef Al Mheiri stated that the chemicals produced in the development will feature a diverse range of industrial applications and they will create further opportunities for exports as well as provide the local industry with a source of critical raw materials that have been manufactured within the United Arab Emirates for the very first time.

Walid Azhari, the managing director of Shaheen, on the other hand, stated that the Chemical Production Project will be the cornerstone for an array of exciting downstream opportunities. He expressed that these opportunities will further create a whole new industrial cluster in the United Arab Emirates which would be a double-win as it’s in line with the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.
