Sabic to produce technical grade urea in Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia

AL-JUBAIL, SAUDI ARABIA: Sabic will introduce a specific grade of urea, technical grade urea, that will allow diesel engines run more efficiently and reduce hazardous emissions. The new grade will be produced at Sabic’s manufacturing affiliate, Al-Jubail Fertilizer Company (Al-Bayroni) in Jubail, Saudi Arabia with a capacity of 80,000 tonne per year.

Sabic’s technical grade urea will enable cleaner diesel technology in engines through liquid injection of urea solution into the exhaust stream of the diesel engine prior to its catalytic converter. This allows the engine to perform better, to use fuel more efficiently while destroying the increased nitrogen oxides with urea.

“As a company with a strong commitment to a cleaner environment through sustainable products, Sabic has developed this strategic, innovative idea to produce high quality urea that helps reduce hazardous NOx emissions from diesel exhausts and industrial processes. The project is part of our sustainability strategy to share our expertise closely with our customers to develop products, applications and solutions that respond to their sustainability needs,” said Khaled Al-Mana, Executive Vice President, Fertilizers Strategic Business Unit, Sabic.
