A new chemical production plant in Lower Silesia

PCC BD will implement an investment involving the construction of a new universal plant for the production of alkoxylates and other chemical compounds. The value of the investment is estimated at PLN 351 million. The project will create at least 55 new jobs. The investment will be implemented with the support of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH) and the Legnica Special Economic Zone (LSEZ) in the chemical industrial park in Brzeg Dolny, in the Dolnośląskie Voivodeship. The expected completion date of the investment and the launching of production is planned for 2026.

The plant is to produce a range of ethoxylates, polyalkylene glycols, polyether polyols and other products. Products from the new installation are to be widely used in many different industries, including the production of, among other things, such products as lubricants, emulsifiers, antistatic agents, dispersants, demulsifiers, sealants, wetting and foaming agents, in industries such as: the production and processing of plastics, paints and varnishes, in the fuel industry and oil and gas extraction, in the pharmaceutical industry, in the construction industry, industrial, household and automotive chemicals, in the textile, furniture (mattresses and pillows, upholstered furniture), automotive (acoustic insulation, cockpits, headlining and steering wheels, seats, headrests, armrests), in the production of plant protection products and in cosmetics and other cleaning agents used by us every day.

Thanks to the construction of the new installation, the company will offer its customers not only products present in the current portfolio of the PCC capital group, but will have the opportunity to introduce new types of products to the market, also based on new production technologies or new raw materials. Some of the products will be available in solid forms, such as flakes, powder, granules or lozenges, which are of particular interest to our customers - said Grzegorz Paklerski, Member of the Management Board of PCC BD Sp. z o.o.

The implementation of this investment strengthens the position of the PCC group in Poland. Currently, production activities in the alkoxylates segment are carried out by two other companies in the group - PCC Rokita and PCC EXOL, in the area of polyols and surfactants, respectively. However, the companies have separate installations for the production of these chemical compounds. The implementation of the investment by PCC BD, a joint venture of PCC Rokita and PCC EXOL, will allow for the construction of a universal installation - the first of such in Poland - intended for the production of several product groups and the use of various technologies.

Combining the strength and resources of both partners by building one installation will enable a quick response to the reported market demand and flexibility of supplies to various industries characterized by different business cycles.

We are glad that, as the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, we can support the emergence of new investments in Poland. Thanks to our help, this foreign company has strengthened its position in Poland. And the local community gains new jobs - says PAIH’s Chairman, Krzysztof Drynda. The new investment also benefits the economic environment. The chemical industry is a strategic branch and a key building block of the Polish economy. The implementation of the investment carried out by PCC will therefore be an excellent stimulus for the development of both the Lower Silesia region and the entire economy - emphasizes PAIH’s Chairman. This is due to the fact that the products manufactured in the new installation are used as a raw material for further industrial processes, but also because at the stage of building the plant. it will be related to the need for the provision of services and the supply of materials, machinery and equipment.

The new investment is also intended to enable the implementation of the results of the PCC group's research work on new solutions. This applies to the implementation of goals related to sustainable development, namely the development of the product portfolio, technologies supporting environmental protection and the circular economy (biodegradable products, using CO2 as a raw material, reducing the carbon footprint by reducing the energy consumption of production), as well as providing solutions that improve the quality of life (mild, biodegradable cosmetics, polyurethane foams with reduced emission of volatile organic compounds). Such opportunities are offered by the location of the investment in a chemical industrial park adapted to the development of projects in the specialized chemical industry, the availability of highly qualified research staff employed in the PCC group and the installation designed to operate in a wide range of process parameters allowing for the production of a wide range of products.

The implementation of such a significant investment would not be possible without financial support. PCC BD received an offer of a government grant under the Program for supporting investments of significant importance to the Polish economy for 2011-2030 and a decision to support the project under the Polish Investment Zone.
