Speciality chemicals producer Solvay has opened South-East Asia's largest sodium bicarbonate plant in Thailand to meet growing demand for high-quality products throughout Asia.

Located on Solvay's existing site in Rayong province, the plant with an annual production capacity of 100,000 tons, benefits from strong synergies in infrastructure, utilities and supply chain.

A Solvay press release said that it invested €20 million in this plant which uses Solvay's new generation Bicar production technology that minimises waste generation, optimises energy recovery and maximises yield.

“The addition of the sodium bicarbonate plant complements our existing presence in Europe and US and creates a new platform to further grow our business in Asia,” Christophe Clemente, president of Soda Ash & Derivatives unit said.

“Our unique global industrial network of nine sodium bicarbonate plants takes us even closer to our global and local customers,” he added.

“In addition, we are bringing them high-quality products and services and best certification standards, along with a reinforced security of supply,” Clemente noted.

Solvay's Soda Ash & Derivatives unit produces soda ash serving the glass, detergent and chemical markets and developing solutions based on sodium bicarbonate and trona.

The division has 11 industrial sites worldwide, more than 3,500 employees and serves 90 countries.

As an international chemical group, Solvay assists industries in finding and implementing ever more responsible and value-creating solutions.

Solvay generates 90 per cent of its net sales in activities where it is among the world's top three players and serves markets like energy, environment, automotive, aeronautics, electricity and electronics.

The group is headquartered in Brussels, employs about 26,000 people in 52 countries and generated €10.2 billion in net sales in 2014. (AR)
