Water Solutions & Specialty Chemicals (WSSC)

Chemtrade’s WSSC business segment operates an extensive North American plant network, producing both traditional industrial chemicals and customized solutions for our customers. The Water Solutions segment consists primarily of inorganic salts, used as coagulants by municipal and industrial customers to treat water and wastewater. Additionally, the Water Solutions team produces a group of products used by poultry growers, as litter amendments, to control ammonia volatilization and improve bird health and productivity.

Along with coagulants and poultry litter amendments, WSSC produces Specialty Chemicals used in a wide range of industries including the paint (ink, pigment, etc.), oil & gas, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food & beverage, and tantalum refining industries.
