We offer an extensive list of chemicals for use in different applications throughout the papermaking process, particularly bleaching. We provide methanol for your onsite chlorine dioxide generation as well as chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, sulphur dioxide, magnesium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, and chelating agents for your CEDED process. Whether your process is ECF or you need to brighten your de-ink fiber, Brenntag can provide the chemistry and secure sourcing you need.


Brenntag supplies the chemicals needed to complete the process of ECF de-inking or for the use of elemental chlorine-free bleaching to remove ink fibers in pulp and paper. De-inking has a more positive impact on the environment, as it means recycling more paper, saving trees, and helping to keep our world green.
