Targeted to come onstream in 2024, the project is in line with PCG’s aim 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/CEO of PCG.
