Kemira has announced a five to 15 per cent price increase for most process and functional chemicals used by pulp and paper customers in the Americas region.

The price increases will be effective on shipments made on or after Mar. 1 or as contracts allow. Rapidly escalating costs for raw materials, energy, packaging, and transportation make this price adjustment necessary.

“Kemira remains committed to adding value to our customers’ operations by providing the highest-quality products and services despite the challenging global conditions,” says the company in a statement.
