Kemira Oyj has successfully started up production in its new coagulant plant
located in Tarragona, Spain. The plant is able to produce the entire range of
Kemira's aluminum and iron-based coagulants that are used for drinking water
and wastewater treatment.

Kemira's plant is built on Bayer MaterialScience's site securing sustainable
access to raw material in a long term partnership. Kemira utilizes in its
coagulant production hydrochloric acid that is a co-product derived from
Bayer MaterialScience's production of methylene biphenyl diisocyanate (MDI).

The new Tarragona plant will be one of largest combined coagulant
manufacturing plants in EMEA. Polyaluminum chloride (PAX), Aluminum sulfate
(ALS) and Ferric chloride (PIX) will all be produced at the site and the
capacity is instrumental in sustaining Kemira's leadership position in the
municipal and industrial water treatment market in EMEA.

"The integration of our production facility and the partnership with Bayer
MaterialScience in Tarragona provides us with crucial economic and
environmental benefits. And after the successful startup of the world scale
coagulant plant in Dormagen, Germany last year, another major step is taken
towards securing a competitive future with coagulants, in line with our
strategy ", saysFrank Wegener
, President, Segment Municipal&Industrial, Kemira Oyj.

The Tarragona plant is also an important step in consolidating Kemira's
manufacturing footprint for coagulants in EMEA.
