Kemira increases prices of inorganic coagulants in EMEA as of February 1[st] 2021

Kemira, a global chemicals company, announces price increases for all inorganic coagulants in the EMEA region across all segments. The price increases will become effective as of February 1st, 2021 or as contract terms allow.

Recent economic rebound and positive developments in many downstream markets have led to very substantial cost increases. As a consequence, costs of key raw materials keep increasing significantly, driven by strong demand and limited availability. In addition, increased freights, regulatory compliance requirements and Brexit related cost, make this price adjustment necessary.

The following price increases will become effective as of February 1st, 2021 or as contract terms allow:

Product line       Price increase
Iron Coagulants + 8-15%
Aluminum Coagulants + 4-6%

Price increases will vary based on geographic region and will differ by product type and may be higher in selected areas.

Kemira continues to be committed as a long-standing supplier of high-quality products and solutions for the water intensive industries in the EMEA region.
