Back cover text:
In 1943 a furnace to manufacture calcium carbide was started up in Guardo (Palencia) in what was then a modest electrochemical factory. In a few years there were several furnaces that had come into action and a multitude of chemical plants were being built around them that used carbide as raw material. In the sixties that modest factory had become one of the most important industrial centers in Spain and one of the most powerful in Europe. This book narrates the history of that factory, describes its technology and reviews the life of the companies that gave life to an entire region. From Unión Española de Explosivos, S.A. to Explosivos Río Tinto, S.A., Ercros, Erkimia and Erkol, in this book you will find the memory of an industry now lost in time that marked the lives of hundreds of families for six decades.
