Solvay: launches the construction of its Dombasle Energy site

( – Solvay and Veolia have laid the first stone of their joint cogeneration unit which will allow Solvay to decarbonize its soda ash plant located in Dombasle, France.

The ceremony took place in the presence of Anne Le Guennec, CEO of Veolia and Philippe Kehren, Chairman of Soda Ash & Derivatives.

Last February, Solvay and Veolia began construction of this industrial energy transition project which aims to replace coal with waste-derived fuel (RDF) for the production of clean and competitive energy for its historic site.

This project will reduce CO2 emissions by 50%.

“It is becoming increasingly urgent not to lose sight of the need to act on the climate and to find sustainable and competitive solutions for the energy transition,” said Philippe Kehren, president of Solvay Soda Ash and Derivatives.

Soda ash, also known as sodium carbonate, is the 10th most consumed inorganic compound in the world and a base ingredient in many products.
