SALT BRINE (>25%) FEEDSTOCK
FOR CHLOR ALKALI AND
SODA ASH INDUSTRIES
The world’s annual salt demand is 300 million tons and chemical industry is its biggest consumer. Salt is a critical raw material for the production of chlorine (Cl) and caustic soda, essential ingredients in chemicals, detergents, and pulp and paper industries.
Low-cost salt is not always available for chlor-alkali and soda ash producers who have to import their salt from abroad at high prices. Hyrec offers them an economically attractive solution to secure their salt needs and obtain fresh water in the process: Up to 26wt% purified brine can be produced by Hyrec’s technology and fed directly into the chlor-alkali and soda ash processes.
