Muntajat and Qatar Petrochemical Company (Qapco) have jointly participated in ChinaPlas 2013

Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat) and Qatar Petrochemical Company (Qapco) have jointly participated in ChinaPlas 2013, Asia’s famous plastics and rubber trade fair.

Muntajat has been established to consolidate the marketing and distribution efforts of Qatar’s annual production of 10mn tonnes of chemicals and petrochemicals. It has been mandated to market, sell and distribute low density polyethylene (LDPE) and other petrochemicals produced by Qapco. The onboarding of Qapco products is planned to be completed in a few months.

“ChinaPlas is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the high quality of ‘Made In Qatar’ products...It is a highly strategic platform for Qatari products as major suppliers and users can meet, interact and exchange on the latest technologies and trends, especially looking at environmentally friendly and sustainable techniques and innovations related to plastic and its applications, to contribute to building a greener and safer world for the generations to come,” said Qapco vice chairman and CEO Dr Mohamed al-Mulla.

After the successful transitions of the marketing and distribution activities of the chemicals and fertilisers produced in Qatar over the past four months, Muntajat is committed to implement a seamless transition of Qatar’s export portfolio of polymers, according to Muntajat CEO Abdulrahman Ali al-Abdulla.
He said Muntajat’s strategic transitions plan has so far resulted in the “flawless onboarding of nearly 80% of Qatar’s export portfolio of chemicals and petrochemicals.”

Terming China as a key market for Muntajat as it continues to grow requiring a reliable supply of chemical and petrochemical products, he said that “by having a joint presence between Qapco and Muntajat, we reinforced confidence among our customers in the Chinese market and beyond.”

As the world’s population selects more packaged goods, he said the demand for polymers, including LDPE and LLDPE (linear low density polyethylene) produced by Qapco and Qatofin, will rise in the coming years.
Muntajat will be prepared to serve these growing needs through its planned network of offices spread all around the world, he added.

“ChinaPlas raises awareness amongst the public about the many developments related to eco-friendly plastics and their numerous practicalities and features, that contribute for instance to making cars or planes lighter, hence reducing energy consumption. Let’s not forget that if plastic was replaced by traditional materials in packaging, world energy consumption would double,” al-Mulla said.
