In 2014, Kemira announced a substantial capital investment in its Oulu plant to capture the growth potential in the tight bleaching chemical market. The new hydrogen peroxide production process was
successfully started during the third quarter in 2015 and the new volume has been sold out.
Positive development in the fiber markets and the ongoing pulp mill capacity investments drive Kemira's investments in bleaching chemical capacity. Kemira has started a pre engineering study for
additional capacity in the Nordics in order to invest in new production lines in Finland and debottleneck the existing units.
Kemira has several bleaching chemical production units in Europe; Äetsä, Joutseno and Oulu in Finland, Helsingborg in Sweden and Europoort in Netherlands.
