With its new chlorine production facility in Tarragona, Spain, Covestro is using innovation to bring Europe a two-for-one deal: helping the EU achieve its sustainability goals and strengthening Europe's production network. The production plant is the first in the world to be based on the energy-efficient oxygen depolarised cathode technology, resulting in energy savings of up to 25%. Along with environmental benefits, the plant brings industrial advantages to the community by creating 50 new local jobs. The chlorine and caustic soda produced on site are key raw material for energy-efficient insulation solutions for buildings and refrigerating devices. Learn more on Invested in Europe
