PCG To Build A Melamine Plant in Gurun, Kedah
Annual capacity of 60,000 tonnes per annum
Commercial operation targeted in 2024
Kuala Lumpur, 19 January 2022 – PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhad (PCG) will be building a 60,000 tonnes per annum melamine plant in Gurun, Kedah, making it the sole melamine producer in Southeast Asia (SEA).
Targeted to come onstream in 2024, this project is in line with PCG’s growth journey to expand into derivatives by adding value to the molecules from its existing products such as urea, methanol, polyolefins, and others. PCG, through its wholly owned subsidiary, PETRONAS Chemicals Fertiliser Kedah (PCFK), will be using the urea produced from PCFK as the feedstock to produce melamine.
“This is a significant milestone for PCG and further strengthens our strategy of diversifying our product portfolio. By housing the plant within the vicinity of PCFK, we will be able to maximise the overall value through the integration of feedstock and utilities with the existing PCFK facility,” said Ir. Mohd Yusri Mohamed Yusof, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of PCG.
