GCC—Phenol Production Capacity
- Saudi Kayan Petrochemical Company in the KSA, with an installed phenol capacity of MMTA, is
currently the sole producer of phenol in the GCC. The entire phenol production from this plant is captive
for the production of its derivative, bisphenol-A (BPA), at the site.
- Cumene, which is produced from benzene and propylene, is the primary raw material for phenol, while
acetone is the co-product from the process. The largest end-use application for phenol is the production
of BPA, which is a precursor for polycarbonate resins. Cumene, Phenol, and BPA production was started
in the GCC during 2010–2011.
