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

“The CyPlus Solid-to-Liquid System is an 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 important 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, CyPlus GmbH.

CyPlus Solid-to-Liquid Containers (SLS containers) represent an innovative packaging and logistics technology for automatic dissolution of cyanide at the customer site. The CyPlus Solid-to-Liquid System also includes a tailor-made dissolution station which ensures that a defined amount of water is transferred through special installation features of the container to dissolve the cyanide within a short time. After this process, the NaCN solution is kept in the desired concentration in the customer storage tank. The SLS container is automatically cleaned and returned to the transloading terminal in Ciudad Obregon for another filling. The system meets very high standards for safety and environmental protection. It eliminates the need to dispose of packaging materials.
