Eurasian Chemical Operations covers Sasol’s production sites in Europe and Asia. About 2100 highly qualified employees manufacture a comprehensive portfolio of organic and inorganic commodity and speciality chemicals at our 12 production sites in Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Italy, the United Kingdom and China. This includes two JV’s, which are operated by external partners: Sasol Yihai in Lianyungang, China and Sasol Huntsman in Moers, Germany.
We deploy a variety of different, mostly proprietary technologies to manufacture products such as surfactants, surfactant intermediates, fatty alcohols, mineral oil-based paraffin waxes, wax emulsions and petroleum jellies as well as high-purity and ultra-high purity alumina. These products are the primary ingredients in detergents, personal care products, solvents, waxes and our specialty products like our alumina are used as abrasives, catalysts, thickeners, ceramics and more.
In close cooperation with our colleagues from Sasol Performance Chemicals we continuously develop and enhance our sites and assets to ensure that we supply Sasol’s customers with the high-quality products they have come to expect of us, including innovative high-end products meeting future requirements.
We place great importance on maintaining state-of-the-art facilities to guarantee safe and reliable operations while minimising the impact of our operational activities on the environment and our plants’ neighbours.
