About This Site
Founded in 1897 Jemeppe site has a very long history. Its first focus was the electrolysis of salt for the production of caustic soda. In 1949, PVC production was added, with hydrogen peroxide added in 1959.
Today the site produces more than one and a half million tonnes of chemicals per annum including salt, hydrogen, sodium hypochlorite, chlorine, caustic soda, VCM and PVC. Sitting on 135 hectares, the site is one of the biggest PVC producers in Europe, with 450,000 tonnes of material to supply key sectors such as building, automotive and piping in the European markets. The coating/recoating of anodes is also carried out at the site. Since end of June 2017, Inovyn's R&T is centralised at Jemeppe. The site holds ISO 9001:2008 certification on quality management, ISO 14001:2004 on environmental management and fully complies with the requirements of OSHAS 18001 on Occupational Health and Safety Management.
