Chemistry with a purpose. Better every day.
Kemira is in the business of chemistry expertise. With our over 100 years of experience, we provide best suited products, expertise, and services to the cellulose fiber value chain to improve our customers’ product quality, process and resource efficiency.
Chemistry is the invisible enabler for safe, functional, and sustainable cellulose-based fiber products. Chemicals play a key role in creating the desired properties for the manmade cellulosic fibers, such as durability and absorbency, and are essential in running efficient and sustainable production processes that save water, energy, and raw materials.
Building on our long history with biorefining and paper, board, and tissue production processes, we provide the most comprehensive chemical product portfolio, application expertise, and vast knowledge of regulatory compliance and chemical safety for cellulosic fiber processes. With this unique know-how, we can support the cellulose-based textile value chain to fully leverage the possibilities of the renewable raw material and enable efficient cotton waste and textile recycling processes.
In 2021, Kemira had annual revenue of around EUR 2.7 billion and around 5,000 employees. Kemira shares are listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. We have a global manufacturing network of 62 manufacturing sites and our world-class chemistry expertise is supported by R&D centers in Europe, North America, and Asia, and with a strong global patent portfolio.
Sustainability is at the heart of our strategy. We are committed to significant reductions in our greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2030 in line with the Science Based Target initiative and are moving raw materials from fossil-based carbon to renewable carbon in our own product portfolio.
