Solvay Intention to End Production of Sodium Percarbonate in Rosignano, Italy; Plans to Start New Hydrogen Peroxide Electronic Grade Unit in Rosignano in 2016

Solvay announced its intention to end the production of Sodium Percarbonate in Rosignano, Italy, by the end of the first quarter of 2016 at the latest. The main reason is the further decrease of the use of powder detergent in Western Europe, market for Sodium Percarbonate (SPC) as a bleaching agent. The anticipated social impact should be very limited as employees will be allocated to existing or new activities on the site of Rosignano. Sodium Percarbonate customers will be served from Solvay's SPC plant in Bad Hönningen, Germany, in which Solvay invested to produce the improved performance grades requested by the market. Hydrogen peroxide becoming available following the planned closure of SPC production will be used to captively feed Solvay's new Hydrogen Peroxide Electronic Grade unit in Rosignano, which will start in 2016, as well as to ramp up the Peracetic Acid unit which began production in 2015.

Solvay Agrees to Examine New On-Site Hydrogen Peroxide Production Capacity in Russia, with Siberwood LLC

Solvay has signed an agreement with Siberwood LLC to examine the construction of new hydrogen peroxide capacity in Russia, using Solvay's innovative myH2O2 technology which is particularly suitable for customers requiring secure on-site production in remote areas. Solvay and Siberwood are assessing whether Solvay is to build a Satellite Peroxide production unit, known as myH2O2, on Siberwood's green-field project of producing 900,000 tons of market pulp per year, in the Krasnoyarsk region, Siberia, Russia. This tailored, on-site unit would be fed by the excess hydrogen feed-stock from Siberwood's upstream chemicals plants and supply hydrogen peroxide to Siberwood. Siberwood would also provide other utilities and site services to Solvay's Satellite Production unit. Solvay's myH2O2 Satellite Peroxide production units unique performance for safe, reliable and competitive operation originates from multiple patented innovations in process intensification and in compact, skid-mounted design.
