Solvay Indupa: Expansion of Vinyl Activities in Brazil

Solvay Indupa, a company from the Solvay Group with main offices in Buenos Aires, Argentina, has successfully concluded a three-year and USD 150 million investment program to upgrade and expad the operations at its Santo André plant in Brazil. The company has started up a new membrane chlor-alkali (MCA) unit associated with the expansion of the downstream vinyl chlorid monomer (VCM) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) manufacturing facility. The investment program was also used to change the layout of the plant into a more modern and efficient layout by merging the MCA and VCM units into one integrated facility, resulting into a reduced investment, an energetically optimized process and a productivity increase on the site.

The Santo André plant has now a total annual VCM and PVC production capacity of 300,000 metric tons.
