We are investing in a new polysaccharide modification plant.


Chemigate Oy is a Finnish company manufacturing and selling modified starch-based binders and adhesives for technical use.


Almost all of products are renewable and petroleum-independent, which translates into an unbeatably low carbon footprint.


The aim is to operate in a responsible, environmentally friendly and safe way in all areas of business.
