CHLORINE

Chlorine is a greenish-yellow gas that can be identified through its characteristic pungent smell. Liquid chlorine is amber in color and is one and a half times as heavy as water.

 

Chlorine is the most efficient and trusted means for keeping drinking water safe from bacterial infection. It is also used to treat wastewater and is indispensable in the manufacturing of bleaching products, plastics, various organic and inorganic chemicals, petrochemicals, refrigerants, textile and paper, photographic chemicals, insecticides, pharmaceuticals, and more.

 

Governments and municipalities across the MENA region rely on Al-Kout to provide a continuous supply of chlorine, with the understanding that our company strictly adheres to world-class health and safety practices.

 

Chlorine from Al-Kout is available in cylinders (50 kgs), containers (900 & 950 kgs) and 20mt road tankers. In addition, chlorine can also be provided through direct injection methods.
