BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Solvay has completed the construction of new high purity semiconductor grade phosphoric acid plant in Bernburg, Germany. The company is supplying this high added value etching acid to manufacturers of electronic devices and components and the semiconductor industries. The plant uses a novel and precise crystallization technology that has been developed by Solvay and its Dutch technology partner TNO.

“This new phosphoric acid plant complements a number of investments and capacity expansions carried out by the Electronic Wet Chemicals Division over the past two years, especially in China and US, in other high purity products like hydrogen peroxide, hydrofluoric acid and ammonium fluoride. With phosphoric acid we are adding a new critical material to our product range whilst relying on our analytical, logistics and customer support capabilities to improve our offering to our semiconductor customers,” said Steve Dobson, Head of Electronic Wet Chemicals Division, Solvay.
