Managing water resources is one of the main challenges we must face in the coming years. The growth in urban development, along with industrialization and the development of irrigation, is increasing the demand for water. The desired improvement in water quality means that we have to use increasingly effective products. The objective is to produce water that complies with current legislation (regulations) using approved processes and products. Given this, SNF IBERICA is focused on offering the best advice to its clients, to achieve the objectives and performance set.
Thanks to the technical expertise accumulated by our technicians, our customers can be sure of an optimal choice of the most suitable reagents for their applications and needs. We have at your disposal technicians with more than 25 years of experience in advising on water treatment.
Through the studies and treatments proposed, we offer our clients an optimal solution for treating their water, which we will control through regular visits and continuous contact with them.
SNF aims to be a key player in the water treatment sector and all related applications. The many initiatives we have undertaken in recent years to promote Sustainable Development, particularly in the environmental, social, and economic fields (energy balance sheet, carbon balance sheet, sustainable development report, social balance sheet, etc.), are closely related to our business activities.

SNF is guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SNF Group has developed a range of over one thousand products, in keeping with its goal to promote responsible chemistry and improve the quality of life for the world’s entire population.
Products manufactured by SNF play a crucial role in protecting the environment, saving energy, and ensuring access to essential raw materials, and have gradually integrated the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact into their policies.
SNF aims to achieve carbon neutrality (Scope 1 & 2) by 2050, reduce carbon intensity by 30%, and reduce water intensity by 20% by 2030.
