The AkzoNobel Salt production facilities are located in Delfzijl, Hengelo (The Netherlands) and Mariager (Denmark). The production of salt is based on vacuum salt technology.
Main raw materials are raw brine and energy (steam and electricity). Raw brine is produced by solution mining in multi-effect evaporation plants. AkzoNobel has an annual production of about 5 million tons of salt. With a capacity of more than 2 million tons our Hengelo plant is the largest vacuum salt plant in the world.
Electrolysis Salt... building block for basic chemicals
The purity of our salt makes it perfectly suited for the electrolytic production of chlorine, caustic lye and sodium chlorate, and minimizes the contaminants introduced into the process.
For our international customers, having AkzoNobel as their suppliers helps them cut operational and environmental costs, while guaranteeing reliable and efficient operations with techniques such as mercury, diaphragm and membrane electrolysis.
