LONDON (ICIS)--Kemira has restarted production of polyaluminium chloride (PAC) at the Krems production site, in Austria, because of the increasing demand for water treatment in central and eastern Europe, the Finland-based speciality chemicals group said on Monday.

PAC is an aluminium-based inorganic coagulant, used in drinking water and wastewater treatment to remove impurities from the water, Kemira said.

The group closed the Krems facility in 2009, as it was not economically viable to continue production.

“In order to serve our customers in central and eastern Europe more efficiently, and in a more sustainable way, we have decided to revitalise the production assets of aluminium-based coagulants in our Krems production site,” said Remko Goudappel, Kemira’s vice president municipal, EMEA.
