The Finnish chemicals group Kemira Chemicals Oy has decided to invest EUR3.5m in expanding its pigments plant in Siilinjarvi, Finland.

The expansion comprises a new calcium sulfate pigment production line which will raise the total capacity of the plant to 80,000 tonnes. The investment will also make it possible to introduce a new extremely bright pigment grade.

Calcium sulfate pigment (CoCoat) is a unique product developed by Kemira. It is used for coating printing paper in order to improve brightness, opacity and printability.

The Siilinjarvi plant is part of Kemira's Pulp & Paper Chemicals business.
