Albemarle Catalysts Company B.V.
The Albemarle Catalysts production site in Amsterdam is located at the Nieuwendammerkade 1-3, on the north shore of the “IJ”.
The location started operations around 1900 under the name “Ketjen.” Since then the Ketjen factory has expanded to a large Catalysts production site.
The main activity of the site is production and research of Catalysts for the petro-chemical industry. These Catalysts are used for the production of high quality fuels such as gas, petrol, diesel and kerosene from crude oil. On the Amsterdam site, three plants are in operation; an FCC plant, producing Fluid Cracking Catalysts (since 1953), a HPC plant, producing Hydro Processing Catalysts (since 1956) and a multi-purpose plant, producing Isomerization, Methyl Chloride, Methyl Amine, Melamine and Oxychlorination Catalysts. A research center and several supporting departments are also located on the Amsterdam site.
Today, approximately 500 employees work on the Albemarle Catalysts site in Amsterdam North.
