INCOPA is the European Inorganic Coagulants Producers Association
Inorganic coagulants are aluminium and iron salts; elements essential for water treatment, paper manufacturing, cement industry and fertiliser production. They are naturally occurring and afford safe drinking water to billions the world over.
INCOPA’s members manufacture inorganic coagulants (aluminium and iron salts) which are used to purify drinking water, treat wastewater, and create vital products such as cement, fertilisers and paper.
How is the use of inorganic coagulants regulated?
The quality of drinking water treated with inorganic coagulants is regulated according to standards published by the European Union and organisations such as the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN). Under these regulations, local water authorities are required to monitor and certify that drinking water is fit for human consumption.
All substances are registered under REACH (the European regulation which deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances).
