A cleaner future for the Baltic Sea will only be possible through cross-sectoral cooperation across borders.

The Baltic Sea is one of the busiest sea routes in the world. Every moment approx. 2000 large-sized ships travel across the sea, from oil tankers to passenger ferries. The ship traffic is expected to double in the coming years.

Due to the slow exchange of water, toxic and other harmful substances remain in the Baltic for many years, endangering the already   sensitive marine life.

On the surface, the state of the Baltic Sea has improved slightly. However, nutrients have accumulated on the sea floor, creating oxygen-depleted areas that continue to release loads of nutrients. The cycle can be broken if the eco-system of the sea is restored.

Eutrophication caused by nitrogen and phosphorus loads is considered to be the biggest threat affecting the Baltic Sea.

round 500 million cubic meters of municipal wastewaster is produced per year in Finland, that is around 320 litres / day per citizen. Many of the Baltic Sea cities use Kemira’s water   chemicals in their wasterwater treatment.

The single biggest point-sources of pollution after agriculture are the waste waters originating from sparsely populated areas. With better wastewater treatment, we can reduce the amount of substances found to be hazardous to human health and the environment in the Baltic Sea.
