Silicates and glass segment


In 2019, it generated more than 6% of adjusted EBITDA (adjusted for one-off events). The operation of this segment is based on CIECH Vitrosilicon S.A., a company which has two production plants: in Iłowa and Żary, and on CIECH Soda Romania S.A. – a plant in Ramnicu Valcea. The Iłowa plant manufactures glass packaging products, water glass (sodium and potassium water glass) and glassy sodium silicate, while the Żary plant concentrates on glassy sodium and potassium silicates. The plant in Ramnicu Valcea has capacity to produce glassy sodium silicates and sodium water glass.

Soda and sand are the main raw materials used in the silicates and glass segment. Like in the soda segment, production is very energy intensive. Energy is generated from gas.

For the purpose of continued development of this segment, the CIECH Group concentrates on the use of new applications of silicates and development of high-margin products.
