Electroquímica de Flix SA. This Society was founded in 1897 by two German companies, and an electric chemistry with the participation of Swiss banks and of prominent Spanish in Barcelona and Madrid, finding that conditions were Flix proximity to raw materials (quarries and salt), water (river Ebro) and presence of energy sources (coal mines and Fayon Mequinenza and the possibility of building a hydroelectric dam in an old building on the Ebro) and optimal media for the transport of goods and coal (rail line between Madrid and Barcelona, which opened five years earlier, and river transportation from the coal mines).
