The winners of the Kemira innovation challenge have been selected. Kemira

innovative minds to suggest novel ways of utilizing intelligence in Advanced
Water Treatment. Kemira is the leading chemicals supplier for raw, wastewater

Among some 20 qualified ideas, a jury of Kemira's water treatment experts

intelligence and remote monitoring. Oliotalo's "Enabling distributed
intelligence" will be awarded with a "Water journey with Kemira", which is
hoped to open new doors for collaboration. The prize includes e.g. a visit to
Kemira's global R&D center of choice in Atlanta (USA), Shanghai (China), or
Espoo (Finland), meetings with business, R&D people and local customers. Two
ideas also awarded were "Solution for intelligent water tracking" byYuequiang
Xu
and "Pure water and pulsed electricity" byHenri Hatakka

"The winning idea might contribute to our existing control and monitoring
offering that connects smarter process management to a global network of
application specialists, chemistry know-how and the right products and
technologies. I am really pleased for this opportunity to continue
discussions with Oliotalo and to develop new innovative solutions bringing
more value to our customers," saysAntti Salminen
