The Dniproazot plant has decided to resume the production of liquid chlorine, according to its website.

Preparations for putting chlorine workshops back in operation have been completed.

Water supply companies in Ukraine use liquid chlorine to purify drinking water, therefore when on 15 June Dniproazot stopped its production and distribution in protest against an increase of energy prices, they faced a critical shortage.

On 13 July, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said Ukraine would be supplied with chlorine. However he could not guarantee that Dniproazot would return to operation.

Dniproazot, for its part, called on the government to raise the price of chlorine.

On 20 July, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) started to check Dniproazot’s managers over the deficit of liquid chlorine.
