Alkalis, Chlorine, and Caustic Soda

Industry Overview:

Smart technology and scientific insights are needed to enable chlorine and its co-product, caustic soda, continue to play key roles in numerous industries served by chlor-alkalis. Two priorities are finding ways to cut electricity costs and develop even more efficient uses of products that run the gamut from PVC to water disinfectant to deodorants.
