The chlor-alkali industry is broken down into three distinct business types. Each has its own set of data, including incident reports and market tracking.
- Producers are facilities that produce, ship, sell, or use chlorine internally when creating other products.
- Sodium hypochlorite manufacturers produce sodium hypochlorite by using chlorine that was produced outside of the facility.
- Packagers receive chlorine in bulk. Their task is to package the product into smaller containers for sale.
