Albemarle to manufacture GreenCrest in Orangeburg plant

BATON ROUGE, US: Albemarle Corporation will manufacture the latest addition to its Earthwise portfolio of eco friendly fire safety solutions at the company’s Orangeburg, South Carolina plant. The polymeric fire safety solution will be marketed under the trade name GreenCrest. GreenCrest is a stable, high molecular weight polymeric flame retardant designed to gradually replace Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) for use in extruded (XPS) and expanded (EPS) polystyrene applications. Albemarle plans to commercialize the new technology in 2014.

“The selection of the production site for GreenCrest is the next step in Albemarle’s agreement to manufacture and market this premium technology and confirms the company’s commitment to provide our customers with sustainable, innovative fire safety solutions that meet the increasing demands of global regulations and standards. The Orangeburg site offers several advantages to our ability to bring this product to market expediently. The proven abilities of our Orangeburg employees will be invaluable in this process,” said Brian Carter, Vice President, Global Brominated Flame Retardants, Albemarle.
