About

Armand Solvay was the son of the chemist and industrialist Ernest Solvay (1838-1920), developer of the ammonia soda process for the manufacturing of soda ash (anhydrous sodium carbonate) from brine (as a source of sodium chloride) and limestone (as as source of calcium carbonate). He patented the process in 1872, after which Solvay plants were established in several countries and the company Solvay & Cie, which Ernest Solvay had founded, expanded rapidly bringing great wealth to him and his family. Armand Solvay would later work for his father’s company. His first cousin, Thérèse Solvay, married another lawn tennis player, Paul Tournay.
