Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, will increase prices by 8 to 15 percent on all polyacrylamide polymers and retention aids across the EMEA region, effective February 1, 2022, or as customer contracts allow.
The price increase is required to offset cost increases in raw materials, packaging, energy and transportation. In addition, Solenis continues to face shutdowns and force majeure declarations from key suppliers.
“Solenis is committed to keeping its customers supplied,” said Naama Lilach, Vice President Commercial Operations, Eurasia, Solenis. “Our recent acquisition of the SCL GmbH business, a leading global producer of primary raw materials for cationic polyacrylamide production, is one of many activities we are currently undertaking that will enable us to secure materials and continue serving our customers.”
