Kemira to invest Euro 50-60 million in sodium chlorate production line and cell-room in Joutseno, Finland

Kemira will invest approximately EUR 50–60 million in its Joutseno site in Finland to implement its growth strategy. Kemira is planning to build a completely new sodium chlorate production line and cell-room based on Kemira’s in-house technology that will significantly increase the Joutseno site’s current sodium chlorate capacity. The construction is expected to start in June 2016, after fulfillment of certain regulatory requirements. During the construction phase, the indirect employment impact is about 200 persons.
