Chemieanlagenbau Chemnitz GmbH (CAC) has signed a contract with Ciech Soda Deutschland GmbH & Co.KG for the construction of a turnkey crystallization plant. The company belongs to the market leader of Poland’s chemical industry and one of the biggest soda ash and soda bicarbonate producers in Europe - Ciech S.A., headquartered in Warsaw.

CAC has overall responsibility for the implementation of all phases of order implementation of the plant in Stassfurt, where the soda producer Ciech Soda Deutschland has its corporate headquarters: Starting from basic engineering over the entire detail engineering, procurement, logistics and installation through to commissioning and turnkey handover. The particular challenge for the engineers in Chemnitz will be to integrate the plant into the existing plant complex.

"We are exceptionally pleased to realize for Ciech this sophisticated plant on the basis of technology from GEA Messo GmbH” says Jörg Engelmann, Chairman of CAC.

With the new crystallization plant, Ciech Soda Deutschland is expanding its portfolio for the production of sodium hydrogen carbonate in pharmaceutical grade. Sodium bicarbonate is a pharmaceutical excipient and is used, for example, in hemodialysis treatment.

After commissioning, the production plant in Stassfurt will produce 110,000 tonnes of sodium hydrogen carbonate per year.
