Solvay invests € 6 million in the expansion of its sodium bicarbonate capacity at the Rheinberg production site. Its start-up is planned by the end of 2018.
Brussels/Belgium — The expanded capacities will be used to produce Solv-Air SB 0/3, a ready-to-use solution for reducing pollutant atmospheric emissions in industries. The solution eliminates acid gases such as hydrochloric acid (HCl) and sulfur oxides (SOx) and allows industrial companies to comply with regulations with reduced investment and operation costs, the company claims.
The manufacturer announced that production at Rheinberg complements the existing capacity in Torrelavega, Spain and creates a new platform to further grow their business in flue gas treatment. Customers include waste-to-energy plants, power plants, industrial boilers, glass, cement, and steel industries.
The project will be co-funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
