Recent News


February 2022: Kemira Oyj has announced that it is starting full-scale production of a polyacrylamide polymer based on biobased feedstock. The first commercial volumes are shipped to one of Helsinki Region Environmental Services (HSY) wastewater treatment plants for trials.

In Mar 2022, Kemira began producing a novel polymer at full capacity with the use of biobased feedstock. One of the wastewater treatment facilities run by Helsinki Region Environmental Services (HSY) got its hands on some commercial quantities for testing purposes.


As a functionally equivalent alternative to this specific polymer type, Kemira provides biomass-balanced polyacrylamide, which is water-soluble so that it can be dissolved easily in water or other suitable solvents such as alcohols or glycols which are commonly used as solvents in many applications where polymers find use today including those related to energy storage systems like batteries; these various industries have great need for them due largely because apart from being cheap they also work efficiently without producing any harmful emissions into our environment during their operation phase(s).


Ashland Global Holdings Inc.: Ashland introduced the Aquaflow™ NX Series of hydroxyethylcellulose (HEC) polymers in 2021. Coatings, construction, personal care and oil and gas are some applications for these polymers. The series includes products with different viscosity levels and compatibility with other materials.
