Ecophos, a neighbour of Indaver, produces phosphates for the chemicals and agri-foods industry, and is currently building a production unit at Dunkirk (Mardyck). It needs hydrochloric acid (HCL) for its processes and now, instead of having to import all the necessary volume/transport this raw material, it will receive deliveries of hydrochloric acid from Indaver through a direct subterranean pipeline.
Another nearby company will receive steam generated during the IndaChlor process. Thanks to this local delivery, the company no longer needs natural gas. The steam, totalling 165,000 tonnes per annum, will be supplied directly through an underground pipeline. The company, an alcohol distillery, is one of the largest bioethanol producers in Europe. It is specialized in the rectification and dehydration of raw alcohol of agricultural origin.
