Solvay: Expansion of Vinyls Production

Solvay announced that the Board of its affiliate Solvay Indupa has approved a USD 150 million investment program to expand and modernize its vinyls production plant of Santo Andre, Brazil, in anticipation of rapidly growing demand in Latin America.

The investment program includes upgrading the plant’s electrolysis unit through the implementation of modern membrane technology with a nameplate annual capacity of 150,000 metric tons of chlorine and the expansion of the downstream vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) manufacturing facility, with the installation of larger, more competitive equipment. As a result, by the end of 2008, the Santo Andre plant will have a total annual VCM and PVC production capacity of 300,000 metric tons, with world-class, state-of-the-art installations. Subsequent developments will be considered to further expand the plant, whose fully integrated PVC capacity could be easily lifted in line with the demand growth .
