Kemira plans expanding facilities for multipurpose chemicals production

HELSINKI, FINLAND: Kemira will invest in an expansion of facilities and a new reactor capable for multipurpose chemicals production at its Telemaco Borba plant in the state of Parana in the Southern Region of Brazil.

“With this two-year, multimillion euro  investment we want to support paper and board production in Brazil by rolling out new technologies. These state of the art technologies for surface sizing, strength properties and surface treatment have been newly launched in Europe and in US. Kemira will now be launching these in South America. This investment supports Kemira’s strategy to further strengthen its position as a key supplier of the pulp and paper chemicals in South America,” said Hilton Casas, Head of South America’s region, Kemira.
