Chlorine & Caustic soda

Salt is the starting material to produce chlorine, caustic soda and hydrogen, which are in turn transformed into hydrochloric acid and bleach (sodium hypochlorite).

Our chlorine is mainly used in the production of chloromethanes and PVC. Apart from bleach, a finished product marketed directly to the end consumers, our other products, especially caustic soda, are used as intermediaries in the manufacturing of aluminium, cellulose, paper pulp or soap, and in water treatment.

Chloromethanes are synthesis agents used in pharmacy and agriculture sectors. They are also used as precursors of the whole chain of fluorides, for applications such as photovoltaic panels.
