Sasol expand ultra-high purity aluminas capacity

14-May-2012 - Germany
Sasol Limited’s Olefins & Surfactants Division announced it will expand in a first step its capacity to produce ultra-high purity aluminas (UHPA) by at least 3000 metric tons per year.
Construction will begin immediately at Brunsbuettel, the company’s Germany manufacturing site on a process to supply Sasol North America’s Ceralox® alumina production facility in Tucson, Arizona with ultrahigh purity alumina precursor.
Sasol Olefins & Surfactants will then convert the Brunsbuettel alumina precursor into tailored products for customer specific applications.  Of particular focus to Sasol are the increasing raw material requirements of single crystal sapphire producers due to rapidly growing LED applications.
