AkzoNobel expands pharma salt production in Mariager, Denmark
Pharmaceutical grade salt is used in dialysis solutions and also as a base material for liquid medications and dietary formulations.

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel’s speciality chemicals business has completed the expansion of a production site in Denmark which supplies essential pharmaceutical grade salt for the healthcare industry.

Located in Mariager, the products supplied by the facility are used as an active pharmaceutical ingredient in various applications, including intravenous solutions, insulin and baby food. Prior to the expansion – which increased capacity by 60 percent – supply struggled to keep up with demand.

In addition to dialysis, pharmaceutical grade salt is also used as a base material for liquid medications and dietary formulations.

“Our facility produces the purest salt in the world. This expansion will now enable us to serve the strong growing market worldwide,” said Nils van der Plas, general manager of AkzoNobel’s salt business.

He added that the main market for pharmaceutical grade salt lies in dialysis solutions. The number of dialysis treatments is increasing across the globe, mainly due to increasing number of patients and improving health care in many developing countries.
