Sabic to launch urea grade

SABIC will introduce this year a specific grade of urea – Technical Grade Urea –  that allows diesel engines run more efficiently and reduces hazardous emissions. The new grade will be produced at Sabic’s manufacturing affiliate, Al Jubail Fertiliser Company (Al Bayroni) in Jubail, with a capacity of 80,000 tonnes 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 and use fuel more efficiently while destroying the increased nitrogen oxides with urea.
