Veendam

Kisuma Chemicals is onderdeel van het in Japan gevestigde “Kyowa Chemical Industry”. Sinds 1999 is Kisuma gevestigd aan de Billitonweg in Veendam. Op deze locatie worden de synthetische magnesiumverbindingen “Hydrotalciet” en “Magnesiumhydroxide” geproduceerd. Deze zogenaamde “hydrotalcieten” worden gebruikt als zuurvangers in de kunststofindustrie. Magnesiumhydroxide wordt als brandvertrager toegepast in kunststoffen.


Na de opening in 1999 is de locatie diverse malen uitgebreid. Momenteel beschikt Kisuma Veendam over een productiecapaciteit van circa 30.000 ton op jaarbasis. Hiermee is het de grootste productielocatie van synthetische magnesiumverbindingen ter wereld. Op de locatie in Veendam werken 100 medewerkers en wordt 7 dagen per week, 24 uur per dag geproduceerd.


Sinds 2008 valt Kisuma onder het “Besluit Risico Zware Ongevallen” ofwel het BRZO. Het BRZO is de Nederlandse implementatie van de Europese SEVESO III richtlijn. Binnen Nederland vallen circa 400 bedrijven onder deze richtlijn. Kisuma valt onder deze richtlijn vanwege een bepaalde hoeveelheid van een milieugevaarlijke grondstof. Voor de BRZO-bedrijven is een aparte inspectiemethodiek opgesteld. Dit betekent dat periodiek multidisciplinaire inspectieteams de locatie bezoeken. Voor meer informatie over BRZO kunt u op de landelijke BRZO-website bezoeken (www.BRZOPlus.nl). Op deze website staan tevens de openbare inspectieverslagen van alle BRZO bedrijven, waaronder de verslagen van Kisuma.

Kisuma streeft na om een goede buur in de omgeving te zijn. Zodoende stellen wij feedback vanuit de buurt zeer op prijs. Dergelijke feedback kan via het contactformulier op deze website worden verstuurd.

Materials

Kisuma Chemicals operates state-of-the-art lab equipment for quality assurance Kisuma Chemicals produces two classes of synthetic magnesium products in Veendam (the Netherlands), Hydrotalcite and Magnesium Hydroxide. Our factory is conveniently located close to a highly pure and reliable source of Magnesium Chloride. That's why Magnesium is central in our organization and in our vision for the future. In this section, you can read more about the background of both materials, including our history of producing them and applications that have been developed by us. 

We consider ourselves, through our parent company Kyowa Chemical Industry (Japan), to have been at the forefront of the development of synthetic hydrotalcite and we are still dedicating a significant amount of resources to R&D, and we are still dedicating a significant amount of resources in R&D, in order to continue the development of this material in new applications.

Next to developments with our current products, we are always open to explore the possibilities to produce new, specialty magnesium compounds with our unique and proprietary production technology. The focus of our research department is not only on hydrotalcites, but on all materials from the layered double hydroxide family.

About Us

The factory of Kisuma Chemicals in VeendamKisuma Chemicals manufactures synthetic magnesium compounds in Veendam, the Netherlands. Our Hydrotalcite and Magnesium Hydroxide products are used as acid scavengers and magnesium hydroxide by polymer production and processing industries around the world. To introduce new products for existing and new applications, we cooperate closely with customers, universities and research institutes. Magnesium is central in our Mission and Vision, but we are technically and commercially interested in all layered double hydroxides.

We are a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyowa Chemical Industry (Kagawa prefecture, Japan), the first company to industrially synthesize hydrotalcites in 1966. In the years that followed, continuous research and product development has ensured that the quality and expertise of Kyowa Chemical Industry and its subsidiaries are still unrivalled in the market today. As a group company, we are the leading producers of synthetic hydrotalcites and specialty magnesium materials in the world.

Our factory in Veendam, the Netherlands, was opened in 1999, but construction work practically never stopped. Having expanded the initial production capacity of the factory significantly, we can now produce close to 30,000 tons of magnesium compounds per year. This means that we operate the largest single production facility for synthetic hydrotalcites in the world. Our products are available any time - any place - any quantity, because we plan our production based on forecast rather than by order. This ensures optimal support and flexibility to our customers.

Global Network

Kisuma Chemicals is part of a truly global group, which supplies products from six factories to customers all over the world. In close collaboration with our sister companies in Japan, China and the U.S. we are fully dedicated to ensure optimal support to our customers.
