Binzhou/PR China – “We are proud to be the first engineering company to launch this revolutionary technology in such an important market as China,” said Dr. Albert Zimmermann, Managing Director of Uhdenora. “As a technology company we are always looking for solutions that are of economic and ecological benefit to our customers. This first order proves that our NaCl ODC technology has potential in the global chlor-alkali market.”

Zhang Zhongzheng, the President of Befar, added: “We are extremely pleased to be cooperating with Uhdenora in building the first industrial NaOH plant based on advanced UHDENORA ODC technology in China. Combining the technology expertise and experience of both companies will ensure the project will be implemented effectively. In setting up such a reference plant we remain true to our pioneering role in promoting new technology and equipment in energy conservation and environmental protection in the Chinese chlor-alkali market.”

Uhdenora is a joint venture between ThyssenKrupp Electrolysis GmbH, a 100% subsidiary of plant engineering and construction specialist ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions, and Industrie De Nora, an electrochemical technologies supplier based in Milan. The new, highly energy-efficient electrolysis technology reduces energy consumption by up to 30 % compared to the conventional membrane cell process. For the planned plant, this corresponds to an indirect reduction of annual CO2 emissions by up to 35,000 metric tons.
