DuPont Buys Ultrafiltration Membrane Business

An agreement was recently signed by DuPont Safety & Construction to purchase the BASF’s Ultrafiltation Membrane business, including a production plant in Greifenberg, Germany, and its global sales force, inge GmbH, the companies announced in separate press releases Monday. The business’ products are used in water purification and treatment. 

“This technology, in combination with inge’s expert team further broadens our portfolio and enhances our ability to design tailored, integrated solutions for drinking water, industrial and waste water treatment applications,” said DuPont Safety & Construction President Rose Lee in a statement. 

DuPont’s portfolio of water purification and separation technologies currently includes ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and ion exchange resins. 

“We need a broad portfolio of technologies to solve our customers’ challenges. The industry-leading, multi-bore PES Ultra Filtration technology from BASF complements our own high-flow PVDF technology providing more choice for our customers,” said NP Nanda, global vice president and general manager of DuPont Water Solutions said in the release. 

DuPont and BASF did not reveal the financial terms of the deal. The transaction is slated to close by the end of this year pending the completion of customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.
