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.
