SABIC Upgrades Largest Plant in the Americas

SABIC’s Mount Vernon, Indiana, facility recently completed significant updates to its polycarbonate production equipment, making the plant safer, more sustainable, reliable and competitive across the industry.

The facility successfully installed a new membrane technology in its chlorine process, which is a key component to making SABIC’s LEXAN™ resin (polycarbonate) products.

Besides lowering operating costs and ease of operation, SABIC expects to increase efficiency of its polycarbonate operations by 30 percent while yielding greenhouse-gas savings of up to 50,000 metric tons per year.
