Muttenz - Clariant's ecological and economical solutions to the performance demands of China's paper industry will take center stage at Booth 3300 during China Paper 2012, September 10 - 12, in Shanghai.

Under the theme "Sustainability meets Performance", the specialty chemicals expert will demonstrate its commitment to support Papermakers' efforts to be both more efficient and environmentally-compatible in their production of high quality finished paper.
