Unrivaled bromine production capacity


Unrivaled bromine production capacity

At 280,000 tons per year, ICL has the world’s largest bromine production capacity, which is supplied to diverse industries on a wide global scale as elemental bromine and through bromine compounds.

Bromine is part of the halogen group and exists in nature as bromide salts. The average bromine concentration in seawater is approx. 70 ppm; in brine wells it may range from 2,500 to 4,000 ppm, while in the surface layers of the Dead Sea, the richest bromine source on earth, it reaches 4,500-5,000 ppm. The estimated reserves of bromine in the Dead Sea, expressed in terms of magnesium bromide, are one thousand million tons.

At ICL’s Sdom facility, the Dead Sea brines undergo solar evaporation. The end-brines remaining after precipitation of sodium chloride, carnalite, magnesium chloride and calcium chloride, are bromine-enriched to as much as 12,000 ppm. It is from these end-brines that elemental bromine is extracted.

Bromine use is vital for modern progress. Elemental bromine is the starting point for manufacturing a wide range of bromine compounds, which are used by a wide range of industries for industrial synthesis, bromo butyl rubber, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals (API), agrochemicals, biocides, flame retardant compounds and more. At ICL, we operate three bromine R&D facilities that are constantly engaged in the development of new bromine-based solutions.
