Brussels/Belgian – Solvay decided to double the production capacity for triflic acid and triflic anhydride (TA, TAA), as well as for Lithium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide (LiTFSI), to meet the rapidly expanding requirements of electronic applications (such as antistatic applications for flat screens, ionic liquids and liquid crystals), the battery market (for automobiles and computers) and the pharmaceuticals market, group speakers explained. Expansion works at Salindres have already begun with the first additional volumes predicted for this month.

"This capacity expansion is strengthening the role of our Salindres plant as a major production site for innovative fluorinated aliphatic derivatives," commented Alessandro Chiovato, General Manager of the Crop Protection, Health & Electronics business at Solvay's Global Business Unit Rhodia Aroma Performance. "It will bring us in a better position to support the growth of our customers in all regions," he added.
