We grow with our customers

From the first lab trials and safety investigations to pilot-plant and large-scale production - Albemarle is able to serve and grow with its customers.


Safe production, transportation and storage is very important for us. As all these reagents are highly reactive, Albemarle meticulously inspects all products prior to launch regarding their thermal stability and safety, degradation and side reactions. This comprises the knowledge about potential intermolecular- and intramolecular reactions or reactions with the solvent.
