Remarks

1963 - January - One 100 000 t/y sulphuric acid line was launched and the first tons of sulphuric acid were produced. This date is officially considered the birthday of the plant. In September of the same year the second, parallel sulphuric acid line yielded its first production.
1964 - Aluminium fluoride plant and the third line of sulphuric acid were launched
1973 - December – the 4th sulphuric acid production line was launched
1975 - 1988 the enterprise was reconstructed and modernized. Some plants were closed and new plants were erected.
2000 - Sulphuric acid plant was renovated and expanded, increasing the yield more than twice. The enterprise became the largest sulphuric acid producer in Europe. The same year 25 MW turbogenerator started producing electricity utilizing the waste steam generated at the sulphuric acid plant. The generated energy is enough to power all the process plants at the enterprise. The process heat released at sulphuric acid plant is further beneficially utilized to heat the local and Kedainiai town objects.
2008 – HR System implemented to recover waste heat as low pressure steam
