LONDON (ICIS)--Potasse et Produits Chimiques (PPC) plans to convert its mercury-based chlor-alkali electrolysis plant at Thann, near Strasbourg in eastern France, to membrane process technology, a chemical engineering firm said on Friday.
Germany-based Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz (CAC), which won the contract for the work, said that the converted plant is expected to be commissioned in 2015.
As part of the conversion, France-headquartered PPC’s bromine recovery capacities would be “increased significantly,” CAC added.
CAC said that the contract is worth about €30m ($39m).
PPC is part of International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG).
