Kemira Chemicals Oy, with activities in more than 30 countries around the world, is a leading manufacturer of water treatment chemicals as one of its three business areas.

products in water treatment. Kemwater PAX-XL60 S, a solid granular
chloride silicate, which is an effective coagulant for treatment of both
potable water and wastewater came to a certain degree of success. This
augurs well for the advent of KPC's venturing into the marketing and distribution
of other products such as polymers for a wide range of applications.
