Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB)

Linear Alkyl Benzene is a major surfactant intermediate used in detergents. Linear Alkyl Benzene is derived from petroleum. LAB’s primary usage is in the manufacturing of Linear Alkyl Benzene Sulfonates.

LABSA, is the world’s largest-volume synthetic surfactant, which includes the various salts of sulfonated alkylbenzenes, is widely used in household detergents as well as in other numerous industrial applications.

Its production has increased significantly from about 1 million tons in 1980, to around 3.5 million tons in 2016, making them most produced anionic surfactant after soaps.
