Kemira invests in water treatment chemicals production in the UK
November 28, 2023
Kemira announces a significant capacity extension of its ferric sulfate water treatment chemicals production line in Goole, UK. The additional 70 000 tons capacity investment helps meet the growing demand for coagulants due to the new and stricter Asset Management Plan 7 and 8 regulation on phosphorus and other nutrient discharge from wastewater treatment set out in the Water Industry National Environment Programme in the UK. The new capacity is planned to be in operation in Q3 2025.
Kemira produces currently over 350 000 tons of water treatment and other chemicals annually at its four UK manufacturing sites in Goole, Ellesmere Port, Teesport and Bradford. Kemira has invested significantly in the Goole site in recent years.
