Treating the World’s


Water-Soluble Polymers

SNF specializes in water chemistry.  Our markets are driven by the increasing scarcity of natural resources such as water, oil, gas, and minerals.  Most of our product applications either treat and recycle water, or minimizes water consumption.  In addition, we help our customers reduce their energy consumption and therefore their carbon footprint.

As a global leader in manufacturing water-soluble polymers, SNF has developed a range of more than 1,000 products that help to preserve natural resources, encourage recycling, and improve industrial process efficiencies.  SNF polymers have several complementary functionalities: flocculation, coagulation, rheology modification, and friction reduction.

Our products are sold to all markets where water is used:

  • Drinking water production
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Sludge dewatering
  • Oil & Gas production
  • Mining
  • Agriculture
  • Pulp & Paper
  • Textiles
  • Cosmetics
  • Specialty Applications

SNF is a significant player in the water treatment market and all related applications.  Numerous actions carried out over the last several years in the field of Sustainable Development, particularly regarding environmental, social, and economic issues (i.e., energy balance, carbon footprint, sustainable development, social balance) reflect who we are as a company and are evident in our activities.

A Letter From Our

CEO & Chairman

Pascal Remy

SNF’s businesses are driven by the increasing scarcity of natural resources: water, minerals and hydrocarbons. We treat the water of more than 750 million people around the world and help several thousand industrial sites to recycle their water. In oil extraction, our products viscosify water, making it possible to increase the recovery rate of oil and massively reduce the consumption of water per produced barrel. In the development of the Canadian oil sands, we treat the lagoons of produced sand in order to restore their initial consistency and allow reforestation.

We are fortunate to be positioned in markets that are at the heart of sustainable development issues. We provide real solutions that help support the growth of our customers while minimizing the environmental footprint of their businesses.

In order to consolidate its leading position, SNF is constantly expanding its product range and reinvesting all of its financial resources in the improvement and expansion of its industrial facilities in order to maintain its competitiveness and that of its customers.
