The Challenge

Kemira is a global leader in sustainable chemical solutions for water-intensive industries. It provides best-suited products and expertise to improve our customers’ product quality, process and resource efficiency. The focus is on pulp & paper, water treatment and oil & gas. For Kemira’s customers, timing is key, as each plant only has limited storage capacity and would need to shut down operations once this capacity is reached. The AI-based solution will use all available data to optimize transportation through Mixed-Integer Programming.

Serge Hudon, Projects Manager – Innovation, Integration, Training, Kemira: “This project will focus on optimizing the transportation routes and minimizing the costs.”
