In the next decades, it will become a major challenge to produce enough food for a growing world population: it will be necessary to achieve higher yields and to reduce losses. This is where agrochemicals – fertilisers and regulators of diseases and pests – come in. Zschimmer & Schwarz has extensive knowledge of the technologies used in the manufacturing of agrochemical formulations. These make it possible to develop formulations that are stable over time, guaranteeing their effectiveness throughout the product's lifespan. Our efficient and eco-friendly additives improve the performance of the final formulation and are tailored to the customer’s individual requirements.

Oil field chemistry

Crude oil and natural gas are still the world's most important energy resources. As regards the production of these established chemical raw materials, oil field chemistry faces many challenges, such as deposit formation in production facilities, reduction in the permeability of oil-bearing formations, problems with emulsion splitting, foaming or plant corrosion. At the same time, environmental protection and compliance with corresponding environmental standards are of utmost importance. We offer a wide range of eco-friendly additives to make crude oil production as effective and efficient as possible.


Products made by the pulp and paper industry are omnipresent in our daily lives – from the daily newspaper to personal hygiene to product packaging. Sustainability, the increasing use of secondary raw materials, the optimisation of energy consumption and efficiency of input materials as well as higher environmental standards are important issues for this sector. Zschimmer & Schwarz offers a wide range of efficient and eco-friendly additives for the pulp and paper industry which help to increase both production quantity and quality.


Due to the increasing demand for usable water, both the efficient use of water and the conversion of seawater into industrial and drinking water are constantly gaining in importance. During the extraction, purification and recycling of water, problems – in particular those associated with scale and corrosion, such as plant damage or shortened operating times and cleaning intervals – need to be avoided or at least reduced. In other areas, deposits can lead to significant losses in energy yield. Zschimmer & Schwarz offers efficient and eco-friendly additives to improve the performance of industrial water treatment plants.
