What we do

Chlorum has as its objective to build small-scale chlor alkali plants for on-site delivery of chlorine and derivatives.

 

Chlorum’s investment team analyzes each opportunity individually and the final plant design can be modified to fit each customer specific need.

What we offer

  • A solution to vertically integrate your process at not additional cost to you.

  • To design, build and install a Chlor-Alkali plant in your facilities.

  • We will operate the plant and charge as you use our products.

As a result, you will have a leaner, more efficient operation without the added headaches of running a Chlor-Alkali plant.

How our process works

Understand your process to adapt the scale and products produced to fulfill your requirements.

Build the modules in our facilities in Uruguay.

Ship the modules to wherever you are located.

Assemble the modules on-site

Operate the plant and deliver finished goods.

What we produce


The Chlor-Alkali process consists of the electrolysis of brine (a salt solution), which produces Chlorine gas (Cl2) , Hydrogen (H2) and Caustic Soda (NaOH). In its purest form, we have two products: chlorine gas and caustic Soda, but can produce numerous other products. Our main inputs and costs are electricity, salt, water and labor, allowing for a very simple operation.

 

Products we can produce and sell:

  • Chlorine Gas (on-site only)
  • Sodium Hypochlorite
  • Hydrochloric Acid
  • Caustic Soda
  • Aluminum Polychloride (PAC)
  • Ferric Chloride
  • Calcium Chloride

Free of Heavy Metals

Our products contain no heavy metals, providing a safer product for water treatment facilities and food product companies.

Increased Safety

Eliminates risks of accidents during transport, storage and handling of chlorine gas other corrosive chemicals.

Adaptable Technology

The modular technology allows to adapt the plant layout and the products it can produce specifically to the need of each customer.

Guaranteed Supply

Vertical integration without the headaches of running another operation. Chlor-Alkali plants have a life-span of over forty years, securing supply of a strategic product for years to come.

No Additional Invesment or Risk

We provide all the investment, and assume all risks associated with building and operating the plant. All we ask in return is space to build our plant.
