Kemira has opened its new APAC R&D center in Pujiang Town, Shanghai, China, to meet rapidly growing market demand and accelerate efforts to develop renewable, biodegradable and recycleable products in the Asian region.
With the state-of-the-art research and development capabilities, the 2,400 square meter R&D center will offer bleaching, sizing, polymers, coagulants and biomaterial expertise as well as application solutions to China and Asia Pacific markets. It serves Kemira’s paper and board customer base and supports Kemira’s water treatment growth initiatives in the region.
The new center works closely with Kemira’s Nanjing and Yanzhou sites in China and its Ulsan site in Korea to develop consistent production processes, source new raw materials and end products. It is an intergral part of Kemira’s global R&D network, in collaboration with other Kemira research centers based in Espoo (Finland), and in Atlanta (USA) to deliver innovation into global markets.
