A production and supply concept developed by Akzo Nobel’s Eka Chemicals business has just signed up its latest global customer. An agreement has been signed with Europe’s largest producer of fine paper, M-real, to establish a new chlorine dioxide process plant at its Alizay pulp mill in France. Around 15 pulp mills have now signed up to Eka’s pioneering initiative, which involves running a bleaching chemicals manufacturing process inside the gates of its customers. Scheduled for start-up in the second quarter of 2005, the new process plant being set up in Alizay will be based on Eka’s SVP-LITE technology, which generates chlorine dioxide using methanol rather than the more commonly used sulfur dioxide. The process will be controlled on site and remote monitored from the Eka site in Ambès, France, supported by the Eka operations center in Sundsvall, Sweden.
