With turnover of $3.4 Billion in 2020, SNF is the world’s leading manufacturer of water-soluble polymers and associated monomers.  SNF has major production sites in the USA (Riceboro, GA; Plaquemine, LA; Pearlington, MS); Europe (France, UK); and Asia (China, India, Korea), with many smaller plants located throughout the world.


Preserving a Natural Resource

As a result of urban development, growing industrialization, and large-scale irrigation, ever-increasing amounts of water are needed.  Wastewater treatment, drinking water production, and industrial water recycling have therefore become central to ensuring the world’s sustainable development and the well-being of the planet’s population.  Therefore, effective solutions and responses tailored to match individual operating conditions are needed.

SNF has maintained a strong position in the water treatment sector since the company was founded in 1978.  To meet the needs of this ever-growing market, we have developed a product range of more than 1,000 organic coagulants and flocculants, which we are constantly expanding and fine-tuning.
