Marleen Pauwels

Executive Director

Having just experienced eight exciting years at Euro Chlor, I tend to forget that it was originally set up as the “Bureau International du Chlore”, assembling the chlorine producers of the Benelux, France, Germany, Italy and the UK.


Management Committee Chairman

Our industry has a promising future. I am confident that we can work together, as we have in the past, to get there, continuing to support a safe, sustainable and successful chlor-alkali industry for Europe.
