WIESBADEN, GERMANY/SHANGHAI, CHINA: SGL Group and Qinghai Salt Lake Industry Co Ltd held a project launch ceremony to celebrate contract signing for the supply of a recovery system which enables the recycling and re-use of hydrochloric acid (HCl). The contract has a value of more than €20 million. SGL Group delivers the system until end of 2013. Thereafter, Qinghai Salt Lake will be able to recycle and re-use HCl, which is accumulated in liquid form at various steps of the magnesium smelting and chemical manufacturing process.

“We are honoured to be awarded by Qinghai Salt Lake as cooperation partner for this key project. We have developed an innovative, tailor-made and reliable system for Qinghai Salt Lake which generates remarkable energy saving compared to standard systems,” said Frank Wittchen, Chairman, Business Unit Process Technology, SGL Group.

SGL Group leveraged its comprehensive process and engineering know how in designing and building of systems for corrosive applications. On that basis, SGL Group developed a tailor-made process solution based on magnesium chloride as extracting agent to minimize operating cost. The system consists of various equipments like stripping columns, heat exchangers, reboilers, pumps, tanks, pipes, etc.
