The chlorine universe
Chlorine is the natural chemical
element that is ranking 17th in the famous Periodic
Table, also called Mendeleev's Table. This table regroups all
today's known elements, natural ones and man-made elements.
Chlorine is a kind of special one: it is so
highly reactive that in nature you will hardly
find it in its pure, molecular form as chlorine gas
(Cl2). But thousands of
chlorinated chemical compounds exist, natural
ones and compounds produced by man.
Very often, this wide range of compounds starts with the
production of chlorine itself. Worldwide, an impressive chlorine
producing industry provides downstream product lines with the pure
chlorine molecules. From there on, chlorine
constitutes a building block in thousands of products that make
life safer, healthier, easier, more comfortable, more energy
efficient: in one word, more innovative. Chlorine chemistry
enables solutions through innovation.
Chlorine chemistry helps
tackling today's and tomorrow's major problems on the
planet:feeding, housing and keeping an ever growing world
population healthier, saving energy and help
generating sustainable energy resources, assure enough mobility and
telecommunications, respect Nature while helping Mankind to move on
