Sabic to produce new urea grade for clean-diesel technology

Mary Page Bailey

Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; will introduce this year a specific grade of urea called Technical Grade Urea (TGU) that will allow diesel engines run more efficiently and reduce hazardous emissions. The new grade will be produced at SABIC’s manufacturing affiliate, Al-Jubail Fertilizer Company (Al-Bayroni) in Jubail, with a capacity of 80,000 metric tons per year (m.t./yr).
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, to use fuel more efficiently while destroying the increased nitrogen oxides with urea. TCU applications include heavy duty trucks, power and cement plants, non-road machinery, and marine transport.
