Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the Bank’s website the Project involves the construction and operation of a greenfield petrochemical facility capable of producing approximately 450,000 metric tonnes (“MT”) of polypropylene per annum using propane as the primary feedstock. The Project will primarily manufacture propylene from propane through a dehydrogenation process and then polymerize it to polypropylene, a thermoplastic polymer with a wide range of uses, ranging from parts used in the automotive industry to textile products or food packaging.
The import and export jetties are a part of the Ceyhan Terminal and are a separate project. However, the jetty and its supporting infrastructure are considered to be Associated Facilities. Propane will be sourced from Sonatrach in Algeria. Polypropylene is expected to be sold primarily in Turkey and Europe. The Project is located within the Ceyhan Energy Specialized (CES) Industrial Zone (also referred to as Ceyhan
Petrochemical Industrial Region (CPIR)), in the Province of Adana, Turkey. The design phase of the Project commenced in October 2019 and construction started in May 2022.
The construction schedule is divided in two phases, the Early Works (Phase 1) and Main EPC Works (Phase 2) which are scheduled to last 6 and 38 months, respectively, with completion planned for April 2026.

Unlike many other development finance institutions, DFC does not currently have an access to information policy.

Under the United States Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), DFC is obliged to respond to reasonably formulated requests for Agency records. However, DFC may apply exemptions from release to certain types of information and may charge fees in responding to requests. DFC has a designated FOIA officer who is trained in how to respond to requests and implement the law. You can learn more about filing a FOIA request at: https://www.dfc.gov/foia


The Office of Accountability is an independent office that addresses complaints about environmental or social issues related to DFC-supported projects. The office provides communities an opportunity to have concerns independently reviewed and addressed. If you submit a complaint to the Office of Accountability, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a problem solving dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the DFC complied with its policies to prevent environmental, social, human rights, and labor harms.
