BASF industrial water business transfered to Degrémont

German chemical giant BASF announced on 30 September 2013 the successful closing of the transaction to divest its subsidiary Industrial Water Management France SAS, headquartered in Lyon, France, to Degrémont, a subsidiary of Suez Environnement.

Degrémont will look to further expand the service-oriented industrial water management business and give the ex-BASF employees a long-term perspective.

BASF‘s Water Solutions business remains focused on offering a comprehensive range of water treatment chemicals and membrane filtration technology for the industrial and municipal waste water treatment sector,

“We continue to create chemistry that is tailored to our water industry customers,” said Matthias Halusa, vice president of BASF’s Water Solutions business.
