Sasol expands catalyst carrier production in Germany

BRUNSBUTTEL, GERMANY: Chemical company Sasol Limited said it has expanded production capacity of its alumina spheres plant in Brunsbuttel to 4,000 tonne per annum. The expansion marks another step in the company strengthening its position in the alumina market to meet growing market demand for alumina-based shaped carrier materials for industrial catalytic and non-catalytic applications, it said.

The company produces high purity and ultra-high purity alumina that is used in a range of catalytic and non-catalytic applications. Due to physical and chemical properties, the shaped carriers produced by Sasol’s performance chemicals inorganics & catalyst division are sought-after in fast-growing markets, such as the refinery catalyst market.

“This move to debottleneck capacity shows we are determined to keep pace with this growing demand worldwide and with our customers’ specific product requirements,” said Dr Klaus Diblitz, vice president, inorganics & catalyst at Sasol performance chemicals.
