The expansion of our site in Antwerp progressed very rapidly. After a build-up of only 18 months the first production plant was taken into service. After the official inauguration on October 7, 1970, our site grew steadily. The hydrocyanic acid plant was completed, followed by facilities for hydrogen peroxide, sodium perborate, cyanuric chloride and AEROSIL®. The necessary periphery was built up very quickly, because there was a pipeline network for raw materials and energy.
Together with other chemical and petrochemical companies also located there, Antwerp becomes the most important chemicals site in Europe, and the world’s second-largest after Houston in Texas.
