Vynova was crowned 'Supplier of the Year' by VEKA Group. The company came top in the ‘Raw Materials’ category, as well as being named overall winner. Vynova supplies VEKA Group with high-quality PVC resins for its industry-leading PVC-U systems.
Stefan Sommer, President of Vynova Group, has been appointed Chairman of the European Council of Vinyl Manufacturers (ECVM) and of VinylPlus®, the voluntary sustainable development programme of the European PVC industry. He replaces Josef Ertl, Member of the Advisory Board of Vinnolit.
Vynova Group today inaugurated its new, state-of-the-art potassium hydroxide (KOH) membrane electrolysis facility in Tessenderlo, Belgium. The plant is the result of a major conversion project which was concluded in April 2018, ahead of schedule. The project involved a 65 million euros investment and is part of a larger investment programme of more than 100 million euros at the Tessenderlo site.
Vynova was crowned twice at the Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe 2018. The company won both the PVC category award and the overarching award on Polymer Quality. The prestigious prizes are voted for by customers and recognise Vynova’s performance as a key supplier to the PVC industry.
Vynova Group has expanded the product portfolio of its Tessenderlo (Belgium) site with potassium carbonate (K2CO3) liquid. The same product is already produced on the site of Potasse et Produits Chimiques SAS (PPC) in Thann (France). Both Vynova and PPC are owned by the International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG), making the group now the only potassium derivatives producer with two European sites supplying potassium carbonate liquid.
