AkzoNobel has completed the expansion of a plant in Mariager, Denmark, that makes pharmaceutical-grade salt. The project increases capacity by 60% for what Nils van der Plas, general manager of AkzoNobel’s salt business, calls “the purest salt in the world.” The main market for drug-grade salt is dialysis solutions. The firm says it had been struggling to keep up with demand.
