"IPP is delighted to serve as the plant supplier for the Chlor-Alkali plant, along with our partner/technology provider BCMC. SR Group and AMEX will benefit from IPP's forty years of global experience supplying cost effective chemical plants.

"Utilizing our global experience along with BCMC's experience of designing and building over 100 membrane electrolysis plants using its Bipolar Membrane Electrolysis Technology, we anticipate a very cost effective and a market-leading delivery time of the equipment to the end user, SR Group," added Mr. Gale.
Over the next eight to ten months, AMEX will work with IPP and BCMC to oversee and manage design, production, deliveries, as well as provide trade finance services for a state-of-the-art chemical production facility to be constructed in Bangladesh.
"SR Chemical Group is proud to bring the latest technology in caustic soda production to Bangladesh. The new facility will create over 500 jobs and will provide significant economic impact to the area surrounding plant's location," stated Mr. Asif Rabbani the Group's Managing Director.
