Finland’s Kemira will invest in an expansion of facilities and a new reactor capable of multipurpose chemicals production at its Telemaco Borba plant in the state of Parana, Brazil.

“With this two-year, multi-million-euro investment we want to support paper and board production in Brazil by rolling out new technologies,” said Hilton Casas, Kemira’s head of South America’s ­region.

“These state of the art technologies for surface sizing, strength properties and surface treatment have been newly launched in Europe and in US. Kemira will now be launching these in South America,” Casas added.

“This investment supports Kemira’s strategy to further strengthen its position as a key supplier of the pulp and paper chemicals in South America.”
