LONDON (ICIS)--Finland’s specialty chemicals firm Kemira has begun construction of a coagulants plant at the Dormagen chemical park near Cologne, Germany, officials said on Wednesday.

“We are looking at some exciting and work-intensive months before we will be able to start up the plant,  likely in the summer of 2013,” said Till Huonker, who oversees the Kemira’s operations at Dormagen.

Kemira had announced plans for two coagulants plants – one in Germany and one in Spain – in February 2011. Coagulants are used in water treatment applications.

The German plant will use hydrochloric acid Bayer MaterialScience generates in its isocyanate production at Dormagen.
