New industry partner: Solvay

Monday, March 2, 2015

CEBC welcomes Solvay as the newest industry partner . To date, the center has been privileged to work with 23 industry partners in total, including our 8 currently active partners.

Solvay is a model of sustainable chemistry, dedicating nearly 150 years to developing and delivering innovative solutions to markets and customers around the world. Solvay has one of the broadest and deepest portfolios of chemical products aimed at such critical applications as pollution control, water treatment, pharmaceutical and consumer packaging, among many others. The company’s three main chemistries are based in fluorine, peroxygen and sodium. Solvay is committed to sustainable practices, and introduced the world’s first process to reclaim sodium carbonate waste and turn it into sodium bicarbonate solutions that treat emissions of coal-fired power plants.
