The company was founded in 1996 as a fully-owned subsidiary. The construction of a butyllithium production facility was completed in 1999.
The plant is located south of Taichung Harbour in Chang Hua Industrial Coastal Park. The facility is a dedicated unit for the production of both normal and secondary butyllithium. Its production capacity allows Albemarle to serve the Asian market effectively. The company can supply butyllithium in all quantities and all forms of packaging, from small volumes for the pilot plant to large quantities in tank containers.
All concentrations of n-butyllithium in different solutions are available, from the diluted product in the 10 % range up to the concentrate (90 %).
The Taiwanese plant's two-hectare site is large enough to allow for future expansion or the erection of new production units to supply material resources to the region's markets on a long-term basis.
