Albemarle Corporation, a leader in the global specialty chemicals industry, entered into discussions with its Middle Eastern partner Ali & Sons Oilfield Supplies & Services Co. (ASOS) to construct a manufacturing facility for FCC catalysts and additives in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Abu
Dhabi represents the ideal site for the proposed facility because it would allow Albemarle to meet rapidly growing regional demand for refinery catalyst solutions and would provide an unmatched security of supply for existing customers in the Middle East. The facility would manufacture Albemarle’s value-added AFX®  catalysts, which promote increased propylene yield from residfeedstocks.
