Update on cellroom conversion project at Stenungsund Site (Sweden)
INOVYN confirms that, in accordance with the deadline agreed with the Swedish Chemicals Agency, it has ceased operation of its mercury chlorine cellroom at Stenungsund Site (Sweden) on 13 May 2018, delivering its commitment to phase out mercury based production in line with European regulations.
This paves the way for INOVYN’s new membrane chlorine cellroom at Stenungsund Site, which is gearing up for operation during Summer 2018.
Comments Filipe Constant, Business Director INOVYN: “Later this summer we will open our new membrane chlorine cellroom at Stenungsund. This investment by INOVYN will deliver long term, competitive and sustainable supplies of chlorine and caustic soda to key industry sectors across Sweden and the wider Northern European markets, as well as underpinning our PVC business in the region.
“As we complete these final steps in our transition from mercury to membrane production our customers can be assured there will be no interruption to supplies.”
