Food & Water
SABIC collaborations help address the growing need for reliable food and water supply. We help farmers to develop targeted nutrients that boost crop yields and we work with experts to create new ways to produce bigger harvests with less water. And our materials help support the water supply in both urban and rural areas.

Water. In the tough growing conditions of the Middle East, this essential resource is in short supply. For farmers with depleted ground reserves, new methods need to be found to grow more food with less water. It’s too important a challenge to put on hold as the world overcomes COVID-19.Read more
Our partnerships help cut greenhouse gases, reduce waste and spread the sustainability message. We not only capture waste CO2 – but also transform it into valuable fertilizer. We make food packaging from recycled plastics and work with the industry to create materials that extend the shelf life of food. With NGOs, we run joint programs to educate young people in sustainable thinking.
COLLABORATION THAT CAPTURES THE IMAGINATION (AND H...
COVID-19 is not the only mega challenge the world faces; another is reducing harmful emissions and discovering how they might be chemically transformed into useful substances.Read more
We partner with other innovators to improve the performance of hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs) and solar power systems. Working with automakers, we can reduce the weight of key components by up to 40%, while our collaborations with materials specialists are leading to higher-performance EV batteries. We’re even helping generators to build solar fields on lakes.
Collaboration means cities can adapt sustainably to today’s challenges. The product of 46 collaborations, SABIC’s Home of Innovation™ achieves net-zero energy balance in challenging desert conditions. And SABIC materials are helping architects to create designs that have energy-efficient insulation built into the walls of new and renovated buildings.READ MORE
SABIC partnerships are helping to protect people in public spaces and healthcare environments and help positively impact patients’ lives. Designers can use our materials to build infection control into the spaces they create, and manufacturers can protect their valuable equipment against powerful disinfectants. Our polymers create next-generation medical devices that give people new freedom.READ MORE
