INOVYN announces the completion of its new large scale potassium hydroxide (KOH) production facility at its Antwerp/Lillo Site (Belgium).

The first production run of membrane quality KOH for supply to customers took place during the first week of October, following successful start-up of the facility.

Comments Filipe Constant, Business Director for INOVYN: 'We are delighted to have achieved this significant milestone in the ongoing evolution of INOVYN, which is the culmination of a two year Project. The Project has been delivered fully to plan and with an excellent safety, health and environmental performance record.

'This major investment not only underpins INOVYN's leading position in KOH, but will deliver our commitment to long-term continuity of supply to our customers.'

INOVYN's new KOH plant (155kT of KOH with 100kT of chlorine) uses the latest membrane technology and forms a key part of INOVYN's Chlorine Strategy.

Antwerp/Lillo Site was selected for the investment as it is well situated to serve customers both in Europe and beyond, with the nearby Port of Antwerp facilitating KOH movements by ship. The Site is a highly competitive location given it has major customers for the co-produced chlorine, which are linked directly to the Site by pipeline. It is also strategically positioned for imports of potassium chloride, a key raw material in KOH production.
