Kemira Kemi AB receives approval for its Fennocide 145 biocide to be used as a slimicide

03/09/2013 Product release

​Kemira Kemi AB’s Fennocide 145 biocide has received an approval from the Swedish Chemicals
Agency (KemI) to be used for controlling slime producing micro-organisms in process waters of the
pulp and paper mills.

Fennocide 145 is an effective disinfectant that contains sodium hypochlorite and sodium hydroxide.
Sodium hypochlorite forms hypochlorous acid that quickly controls microbes, and any remaining
active chlorine is fully degraded in the high organic content of the mixed waste water. In order to
stabilize the hypochlorous acid, Fennocide 145 can be used together with Kemira’s Fennosurf 300
that contains dimethylhydantoin.

Fennocide 145 is currently the only sodium hypochlorite product having slimicide approval for
controlling microbes in pulp and paper process waters in Sweden.

Kemira Kemi AB is a subsidiary of Kemira Oyj.
