BRUSSELS, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Belgian drugs, chemicals and plastics maker Solvay said on Thursday it had decided to build a plant in Thailand producing epichlorohydrin, a feedstock for epoxy resins.

The plant in Map Ta Phut should be operational at the end of 2009 with an annual production capacity of 100,000 tonnes and will use Solvay's Epicerol process, based on the transformation of glycerine, a renewable by-product of the biodiesel industry.

Epoxy resins are increasingly used in applications in the electronics, automotive, aerospace and windmill sectors, Solvay said in a statement.
