The 17 Successes


Over 7500 people are directly employed in making chlorine and caustic soda (chlor-alkali) in Europe.

From these chemical professionals come all the products we rely on every day to make our lives easier, safer or healthier; products you can read about on this site.

Many of our jobs also need chlor-alkali chemistry and would be very different, less efficient or more dangerous without it.

Taking '17' as our inspiration (from chlorine's position on the chemical Periodic Table of elements), we are pleased to present 17 real Europeans, whose success at work is all thanks to chlor-alkali chemistry.
