SPOLCHEMIE begins membrane electrolysis
In September 2017, SPOLCHEMIE – Spolek pro chemickou a hutní výrobu officially began the production of potassium hydroxide in its brand new membrane electrolysis. The total cost of acquiring this technology and putting it into operation reached almost CZK 2 billion. This is the highest amount invested in the modern history of Spolchemie. The company will thus double the current production capacity and consolidate its position among the most important EU producers of potassium hydroxide. The main products of the new technology are used in the chemical, textile, metallurgy, water and food industries. Spolchemie itself processes some of it for their own production of epoxy systems and resins.
