Joint venture begins tri-ethyl aluminium production in Saudi Arabia

Sabic Innovative Plastics : 13 July, 2013  (Company News)
Saudi Organometallic Chemicals Company (SOCC) has started up its aluminium alkyls facility in Jubail, Saudi Arabia.

SOCC is a 50-50 joint venture between Saudi Specialty Chemicals Company, a manufacturing affiliate of Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), and Albemarle Netherlands BV, a wholly owned subsidiary of Albemarle Corporation, The facility will manufacture 6000 tonnes annually of tri-ethyl aluminium (TEA), used as a co-catalyst in the plastics industry. An ultra-low hydride grade of TEA (TEA-ULH) will also be produced at the SOCC plant.
 
The new facility will meet the growing needs for TEA and ULH-TEA in the region. TEA is a Ziegler Natta co-catalyst used in the plastics industry.
 
The first batch of TEA, which was successfully completed in mid-April, met or exceeded all commercial specifications.  There were no environmental or safety incidents incurred during the entire construction and start-up phase of the project.
