In Runcorn, Vynova-Group produce chlorine (Cl2) and ethylene dichloride (EDC), two essential intermediates for the production of PVC. The other key product is caustic soda (NaOH), a basic chemical used by our customers to make a wide range of end products for daily life.

The Runcorn site features a state-of-the-art membrane electrolysis plant for conversion of brine solution (common salt dissolved in water) into chlorine. The plant was commissioned in late 2005 and is operated in a 50/50 joint venture with Inovyn under the name of Runcorn MCP Limited.

In a second plant, the EDC Manufacturing Asset, we use ethylene (supplied directly by pipeline) and chlorine to produce EDC. That EDC is shipped to the Vynova site in Wilhelmshaven (Germany) and to customers worldwide. In Wilhelmshaven, we use the EDC to produce vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), the basic building block to make PVC, a high-quality material that our customers convert into a host of end products.
