HELSINKI, Sept. 11, 2012 (Press Release) -The annual PPI Awards recognize the achievements of companies, mills and individuals in the pulp and paper sector. The awards provide an opportunity for pulp and papermakers worldwide to show off their strategic accomplishment as well as achievements in leadership, vision, and innovation on a global platform.

Kemira participates in PPI Awards 2012 by sponsoring the Water Efficiency Award. "Water is a vital resource for the pulp and paper sector and the topic is becoming even more important as the global spotlight falls on the possible shortage in the future", says Kenneth Nysten, Senior Vice President, Printing & Writing, Paper. "The worsening imbalance between water demand and supply will require new water treatment solutions, especially such that can increase water reuse and enable utilization of poor-quality raw water sources. The winner of this award will be the mill that has clearly reduced the need for raw water while at the same time demonstrating that it is maximizing water reuse by filtering and circulation."

The finalists in the Water Efficiency Award category are:

  • Bignardi Papeis, Brazil
  • BILT Graphic Paper Products Limited, Bhigwan Unit, India
  • Cascades Candiac Mill, Canada
  • Klabin Monte Alegre, Brazil
  • Shandong Sun Paper Industry Joint Stock Co, Ltd, China
  • Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Papers Ltd, India

The PPI Awards 2012 will be held in Brussels, Belgium on November 12, 2012 alongside the CEPI European Paper Week event. The finalists of each category have been chosen by an international panel of independent judges made up of industry experts. The finalists are invited to attend a gala dinner where the winners are revealed. Winners are presented with their trophies by the sponsor of each category and a celebrity host.
