Sasol Olefins&Surfactants (O&S) has reached an important milestone in the expansion of its capabilities with the production of its new ALCAT TEAL highly purified tri-ethyl aluminum product.
Production at the new TEAL plant in Brunsbüttel, Germany, which went on-line in June, has been operating for nearly a year.
The facility has an initial annual TEAL production capacity of 6,000 metric tons.
In addition, Sasol O&S has obtained further approvals for the use of ALCAT TEAL in applications such as the Novolen process, a leading polypropylene gas-phase technology.
ALCAT TEAL is used as a co-catalyst in the production of polyethylene and polypropylene, and also as a reactive intermediate in the manufacturing of linear alpha olefins (LAO).
