Geotextiles are speciality products used as a liner in the construction industry.
NATPET has a 50:50 joint venture with British company Low & Bonar for the project that will see a total capacity of 35,000 tonnes once the second phase is also completed, Hamed Khalil, vice president of marketing and sales at NATPET said.
“We expect the unit will be commissioned in the first quarter of 2013,” Khalil told ICIS on the sidelines of 46th annual European Petrochemical Association (EPCA) meeting.
He said the second phase will be undertaken soon after the commissioning takes place and the company determines demand for the product.
One of the applications of geotextile liners is that they are laid beneath the surface of roads.
The annual EPCA meeting runs from 6-10 October.
