HOUSTON (ICIS)--ALTIVIA Chemicals has acquired Kemira Water Solutions’s ferric and ferrous sulphate business in Houston, the US water treatment chemical supplier said on Monday.

The acquisition adds to ALTIVIA’s line of aluminium and polymer-based products, the Houston-headquartered company said.

The deal, which is completed, only applies to Kemira plant in Pasadena, which is near Houston, said Louis Huey, ALTIVIA chief operating officer. He did not disclose production levels.

Ferris sulphate is used as a coagulant to separate suspended solids in potable water treatment. Ferrous sulphate is used as separation flocculent and in phosphorous removal of industrial and municipal waste water.

ALTIVIA produces sodium hydrochlorite, repackageable chlorine, as well as a variety of blends, Huey said. It also resells caustic soda.
