Silicates and glass segment


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 and water glass (sodium and potassium water glass), and the Żary plant concentrates on glassy sodium and potassium silicates. The plant in Ramnicu Valcea produces 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 – purchased by the CIECH Group under a long-term contract (price according to the tariff approved by the Energy Regulatory Office).

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.
