Secondary industries utilize feedstock from heavy industries and process them to produce value-added downstream plastic and petrochemical products. These industries provide direct value to the local economy, by providing a stable source of inexpensive industrial and consumer goods for the domestic and regional markets.
Reinforcing Bar Rolling Mill
Reinforcing bar (rebar) rolling mills are an essential component in construction and civil work. A rebar rolling mill will help to satisfy a portion of the expected construction material demand in the Gulf of Sirte domestic market.
Di-Ammonium Phosphate (DAP) Fertilizer Plant
In response to a constant rising global demand for fertilizers and considering the trend toward greenhouse-based agriculture in North Africa, an agrochemical DAP fertilizer plant is suitable for Al Brega since the feedstock (ammonia) is currently produced on site.
Black Pipe (Bimodal Polyethylene) Plants
Bimodal Polyethylene pipe is well suited for uses in gas, potable water, sewer, and mining due to its higher impact strength and resistance to rigors of pipe laying conditions. The Black Pipe plant will take advantage of the availability of local feedstock and can be used to satisfy the extensive construction activities expected in the region.
The industrial program at Al Brega plans to establish a Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) plant. The use of LAB is in the manufacturing of Linear Alkyl Sulfonates (LAS), a surfactant ingredient in detergents. To leverage this local raw material source, a detergent plant will provide a value-added secondary industry in Al Brega.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Pipe Plants
PVC Pipe is used mainly for the municipal water, sewer, irrigation, and related industrial and residential markets. A PVC plant at Al Brega will be able to leverage the availability of local PVC supply from the new petrochemical facilities.
