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 minimize water consumption.

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.

A Letter From Our Chairman & CEO

Since our inception, SNF has put knowledge and passion for water science into practice. Every day at SNF, all 8,150 of our employees contribute to water treatment, preservation, and recycling for more than 1 billion people worldwide and tens of thousands of industrial sites. We also help our customers save energy and reduce their carbon footprint. We contribute to the responsible extraction of key mineral resources essential to the energy transition. SNF strives to offer innovative, customized, and more environmentally-friendly solutions.

While our mission has remained the same over the years, changes in our world are accelerating. We must therefore align SNF with society’s broader challenges and expectations, from people matters – health and safety, diversity and inclusion, talent and skills development – to fundamental issues of the changes in the climate and the depletion of natural resources.

SNF Responsible Chemistry reflects SNF’s goal of being one of the most exemplary chemical producers in terms of environmental footprint. This defines our ambition and strategy, which focus on three core pillars:

  • Decarbonizing our Activities
  • Reducing Water Intensity Footprint
  • Ensuring a Safe and Inclusive Work Environment for All

At SNF, we are committed to ensuring that these drivers are more than just empty messages.

They are part of the Group’s DNA and give meaning to our actions.

A Letter From Our Chairman & CEO


Assure our clients the most reliable source and the broadest range of water-soluble polymers and services and help them reduce their water and energy needs and their carbon footprint.


Be the world’s preeminent provider of sustainable water chemistry.
