Compounding Success

November, 2018

The Warsaw-based chemicals giant CIECH Group is investing €109m in a new plant in Stassfurt, Saxony-Anhalt, to produce salt for the food and pharmaceuticals industries starting in 2020.

The plant – the biggest greenfield investment in the Group’s history – will produce approximately 450,000 tons of evaporated salt a year for western European markets, making it the third-largest producer in Europe. Products will include food-grade salt, salt for electrolysis, tablets for water treatment and pharmaceutical salt.

The state is providing €11.25m in subsidies, assisted by GTAI.
