CyPlus GmbH and Evonik Degussa Mexico, both subsidiaries of Evonik Industries AG of Germany, will open a cyanide transloading station for CyPlus Solid-to-Liquid Containers at its warehouse and logistics center in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora in spring 2012.

CyPlus Solid-to-Liquid Containers, or “SLS containers” are described by the company as an innovative packaging and logistics technology for automatic dissolution of cyanide at the customer’s site. The CyPlus Solid-to-Liquid System also includes a customized dissolution station to ensure that the correct amount of water is transferred through special installation features of the container to quickly dissolve the cyanide. After this process, the solution is kept in the desired concentration in the customer’s storage tank. The SLS container is automatically cleaned and returned to the transloading terminal for further use. The system, claimed to meet high standards for safety and environmental protection, eliminates the need to dispose of packaging materials.

“The CyPlus Solid-to-Liquid System is the most innovative and proven bulk handling technology for the shipment and the safe, responsible handling of cyanides, which we are proud to introduce to the growing Mexican mining market. And with Evonik Degussa Mexico we have an excellent set-up in this important market to respond as quickly as possible to our customers’ needs,” said Frank Harenburg, managing director of CyPlus GmbH.
