Water is a very important medium in a wide range of industries, where it is normally encountered as process water or as wastewater. This water needs to be treated prior to entering the process to ensure that its quality and properties will support the industrial process as effectively as possible, and to ensure that it causes minimal damage to process equipment.
Furthermore, a clear trend today among industries that use large amounts of water, such as pulp & paper, steel, food & beverage, textile, etc, is to recycle and reuse water to an increasingly high degree, thereby reducing water consumption as well as pollution – all of which lead to cost reductions. Finally the wastewater needs to be treated so that it can be released into the municipal sewer systems and ultimately back into its source.
Kemira have extensive experience in industrial water treatment. As a global actor we constantly meet with a diversity of water-related challenges. This has provided us with an unsurpassed bank of knowledge. We have probably encountered more challenges related to water treatment than anyone else in the market. We provide products and solutions that provide extracted or recycled water of suitable quality to be used in-process.
We make sure wastewater is treated in such a way that when released its quality is comparable to, or even better than, the receiving waterway.
