QatarEnergy has announced a plan to build a salt production plant in the Um Al Houl area in Qatar through a joint venture by Mesaieed Petrochemical Holding Company (MPHC), Qatar Industrial Manufacturing Co. (QIMC), and other strategic partners.

Endorsed as part of QatarEnergy’s TAWTEEN localisation programme, the new plant will be built at an estimated cost of about QR1 billion. It will ensure Qatar’s self-sufficiency by producing both industrial and table salts to meet local market demand as well as for regional and international export.

The plant will produce industrial salts necessary for the petrochemical industry as well as Bromine, Potassium Chlorides, and demineralized water, which will allow for product diversification and additional economic growth and enhance the circular economy.

Minister of State for Energy Affairs, QatarEnergy President and CEO HE Eng Saad bin Sherida Al Kaabi said the project constitutes a milestone step in the ongoing efforts to support industrial localization and to promote sustainable practices within Qatar’s energy sector, embodying the commitment to innovation and economic growth, which represent the core tenets of Qatar’s National Vision 2030. page 10
