31 January 2023
SABIC, a global leader in diversified chemicals, will be making a strong presence at the highly anticipated PlastIndia 2023, a major plastics and rubber tradeshow. The event is making a return after a three-year pause due to challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Held from 1st to 5th February in New Delhi, SABIC will showcase its innovative, sustainable solutions at its booth in Hall 2, Ground Floor, B1, at Pragati Maidan. These solutions will highlight how SABIC can help contribute to India's growth and support its carbon neutrality goals by accelerating the pivot to electric mobility and a circular economy.
Sami Al-Osaimi, Executive Vice President (A), Petrochemicals, SABIC, said, "SABIC's presence in India across three decades is a reflection of our commitment to India's growth journey, as well as our ambition to be at the forefront of delivering sustainable and innovative solutions. Our Technology & Innovation footprint in the region is focused on providing comprehensive solutions applicable to the needs of our customers in India, underlining SABIC's focus on growing together through innovation. All of which will enable India's sustainable growth."
To demonstrate this, SABIC will display at PlastIndia 23, its sustainable, high performance material solutions that have shown to be suitable for industries like automotive and electric mobility, consumer goods, food packaging, solar power panels, 5G networks, electrical and electronics, and the healthcare sector.
SABIC will exhibit an award-winning EV battery pack cover that is 40% lighter than one made from metal and which meets stringent fire safety standards. These materials fall under SABIC's BLUEHERO initiative, which aims to enable the shift to electric power and increase vehicle efficiency.
Electrical & Electronics:
5G services in India have led to the demand for Multiport Service Terminal parts and optic fiber cable jackets. SABIC solutions such as VALOX resin that is flame retardant, and demonstrates good chemical and mechanical resistance, will be at display at SABIC's booth.
Aimed at reducing waste by using durable yet lightweight, mono-material solutions and applications designed for recycling - a new fully recyclable stand-up pouch made with SABIC BOPE material that helps contribute to the circular economy will be showcased.
Building & Construction:
To support the need in rising demand for enhanced quality of life and healthy living, SABIC offers LEXAN and CLINIWALLsheets which have anti-bacterial properties and strong impact resistance to which have been used in solutions that help better safeguard public health in hospitals, childcare and public facilities. Through SABIC Vestolen P9421 solution, SABIC can also facilitate clean water supply through pipes made of SABIC material which are highly heat stabilized to carry hot and cold potable water supply for households.
India's 2030 renewable energy target has fueled the rapid growth of solar capacity installation. SABIC will be displaying its POE solutions with excellent mechanical properties alongside HDPE solution for the making of solar floats.
Sami Al-Osaimi further added, "Continuing our commitment to reducing the carbon footprint, SABIC is focusing on leveraging more than 4 GW of renewable energy through solar, wind, hydroelectric, and biomass installations across Saudi Arabia, Europe, the Americas, and Asia-Pacific. We are also committed to producing 1 million metric tonnes of TRUCIRCLE™ solutions per year by 2030 to support circularity for plastics."
