Albemarle expands PDC for finished polyolefin catalysts in Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, US: Albemarle Corporation successfully completed the latest expansion of its process development centre (PDC) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana by installing a new production train for finished polyolefin catalysts and a number of supporting auxiliaries. This expansion is the latest in a series of projects that Albemarle is undertaking to meet the growing demand for its metallocene/single site finished catalyst business. A separate production facility is also being constructed in Yeosu, Korea to help meet this demand.

“This new train will add to the capacity in our existing facilities at the PDC. The increased capacity is required to meet the growing demand for finished single site catalysts used in the polyolefin industry including Albemarle’s ActivCat technology,” explained Amy Motto, Vice President, Performance Catalyst Solutions division, Albemarle.
