Chlorine: an important chemical in our day-to-day life
Our chlorine products are provided by Nobian, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nouryon.
We are a leading producer of chlorine in Europe with 2 production sites in The Netherlands and 3 in Germany.
Chlorine is an important chemical in our day-to-day life and is a major building block for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. Chlorine is produced by electrolysis of salt (brine), together with its co-products caustic lye and hydrogen.
Many chemicals, plastics and medicines depend on chlorine during the manufacturing process, although the chemical is not contained in the end product. Some 55% of European chemical production depends on chlor-alkali products.
We are an active member of Euro Chlor, the European organization for Chlorine producers. Euro Chlor develops and promotes the best safety, health and environmental practices for manufacturing, handling and use of chlorine.
Methyl Chloride is used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, mainly as raw material for the production of silicones and methyl celluloses, but also for surfactants, pharmaceuticals and dye stuffs.

Ferric Chloride is a coagulant produced from chlorine—either virgin chlorine or chlorine from hydrochloric acid—and iron. Iron chloride’s coagulation is an important process in water treatment to remove turbidity and particles, and to enhance sludge dewatering. Our Ferric Chloride comes with 40% solution N-Grade and 40% solution P-Grade. For more information on our Iron Chloride products, please download our Application Guide or Product Data Sheet.Read more
Sodium hypochlorite is a clear, slightly yellowish solution with distinct odor. It is produced by reacting chlorine with a solution of sodium hydroxide. Sodium Hypochlorite shows, as well as chlorine, a very high reactivity and oxidizing power, but as a solution it is easier to handle and more cost-effective than chlorine.

Hydrogen chloride (HCl) is a colorless gas. Its aqueous solution is known as Hydrochloric Acid. Hydrogen chloride or hydrochloric acid is produced by burning hydrogen and chlorine together and is also a by-product of the chlorination of organic compounds. The concentration and the quality of HCl are the decisive factors for the type of application. Our Ferrous Chloride comes in 30% solution.
