Vynova expands its Tessenderlo potassium derivatives portfolio

10. January 2018

Wednesday, 10 January 2018 - Vynova Group has expanded the product portfolio of its Tessenderlo (Belgium) site with potassium carbonate (K2CO3) liquid. The same product is already produced on the site of Potasse et Produits Chimiques SAS (PPC) in Thann (France). Both Vynova and PPC are owned by the International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG), making the group now the only potassium derivatives producer with two European sites supplying potassium carbonate liquid.

“With our enhanced product offer, we take another important step in better serving our customers. We were already the only company able to supply caustic potash (KOH) from two European production sites and are proud that this is now also the case for potassium carbonate liquid. It is a sign of our continued long-term commitment to our customers and further strengthens our position as Europe’s number one supplier of potassium derivatives”, says Johan Van Den Broeck, Vynova Executive Vice President Commercial.
