Qatar Melamine Company


QAFCO manages the QMC plant at its facility in Mesaieed.


Inaugurated in October 2010, Qatar Melamine Company (QMC) has a production capacity of 60,000 t/a and is the largest melamine plant in the Middle East as well as one of the largest in the world. It is capable of supplying 5% of global melamine demand.

QMC is a joint venture between QAFCO and Qatar Holding. QAFCO is the majority shareholder with 60 per cent of ownership. The fertiliser company runs both the operational and administrative aspects of the new plant. By utilizing QAFCO's excess urea supply, costs at QMC have been controlled very efficiently.

The technology used in the Qatar Melamine plant is Eurotecnica’s High Pressure melamine technology, which uniquely stands as the state-of-the-art in the global melamine production industry.
