Inovyn (UK) opens new plant in Lillo (Flanders)

Chlorovinyls producer Inovyn — a joint venture between chemical concerns Solvay and INEOS (Switzerland) — is building a new plant in Lillo (Flanders), in the port of Antwerp. The investment involved amounts to “several million euros”.

Official permits have been granted and construction of the new production facility on the Solvay site has already started. The plant will be finished in the course of 2017 and produce around 160,000 tonnes of potassium hydroxide (KOH) per year.

Solvay and INEOS founded Inovyn in June 2014 to pool both chemical concerns’ expertise in chlorovinyls production. Inovyn’s London-based management chose Antwerp because of its excellent export location. The finished products will be shipped to clients worldwide from the port of Antwerp.
