Adding more [membrane] tools to the toolkit
DuPont Water Solutions recently made the headlines with two high profile acquisitions.
Kickstarting the company’s investment and growth plan was an agreement to buy the inge ultrafiltration (UF) membrane business from German chemical company, BASF, for an undisclosed sum.
Following this, DuPont then signed an agreement to acquire the Memcor business, including the ultrafiltration and membrane biofiltration technologies from Evoqua Water Technologies.
Discussing the two major acquisitions, HP Nanda, Global VP of DuPont Water Solutions, said: “We have been the global leader in reverse osmosis for a long time, and we have been the leader in ion exchange resin, as well as a small business in ultrafiltration. As we have been looking at the evolving needs of our customers, we realised we needed to broaden our portfolio.”
