May 9, 2014 at 9.00 am (CET+1)

Kemira has been selected as a supplier of sodium chlorate to Klabin's new 1.5
million ton pulp mill in Paraná, Brazil. Sodium chlorate is used as a
component in the bleaching process, an important process step in the
manufacturing of bleached pulp.

Kemira will build, own and operate a sodium chlorate plant, which is expected
to increase Kemira's annual capital expenditure by some 15%-25% in 2014-2015
compared to 2013 capital expenditure of EUR 135 million, depending on the
exact timing of the project build-out. Kemira's sodium chlorate plant is
scheduled to begin production during the first half of 2016. The plant will
employ around 30 people.

"Kemira is a global leader in the production and supply of chemicals for the
pulp and paper industry and has the most comprehensive offering for pulp
production. This project strengthens our capabilities to serve the growing
demand for pulping chemicals in the South American market", says Billy Ford,
Senior Vice President, Paper, The Americas.

Klabin was founded in 1899 and operates 16 mills (15 in Brazil and one in
Argentina), targeting markets such as packaging paper and board, corrugated
packaging, and industrial bags producers. The new pulp mill in Brazil is the
largest investment in Klabin's history and will double the company's
production capacities.
