BASF presents its latest innovations in water treatment chemistry at WETEX 2016

  • Focus on growing desalination and waste water treatment market in the Middle East
  • Connect with BASF experts and discover the chemical product offering to enable reliable and cost-efficient operations of water treatment facilities

Ludwigshafen, Germany – September 29, 2016 – At the Water, Energy Technology And Environment Exhibition (WETEX) 2016, one of the leading water industry events, BASF presents its expertise in water treatment chemicals on October 4-6, 2016 at the Dubai International Exhibition Center in hall 8, booth # CV-12.

In line with the WETEX 2016 theme “At the Forefront of Sustainability”, BASF is showcasing its well established range of customer-centric and environmentally-beneficial solutions for the water industry to enhance the dewatering performance of waste water treatment plants, maintain the high level of productivity of desalination plants and protect these high-investment facilities from scale formation and fouling.

BASF is continuously investing in new solutions for water treatment chemistry and highlights its latest product developments at WETEX 2016:

Sokalan® AF-X – New water soluble and readily biodegradable antifoam for thermal desalination processes providing excellent foam control properties at low dosage rates.

Sokalan® RO 3500 – New multifunctional antiscalant for reverse osmosis membrane treatment with proven performance on various scales, different feed water compositions and especially designed for water re-use applications. Compared to phosphonate-based antiscalants Sokalan® RO 3500 is not causing eutrophication to water bodies.

Zetag® ULTRA – Latest product line of cationic ultra-high molecular weight powder flocculants for superior sludge dewatering performance at lower dosage rates.

inge® – Highly efficient Ultrafiltration (UF) technology with resilient Multibore® membranes and space-saving T-Rack® solutions for a wide range of applications in any kind of water – now also available for horizontal UF membrane replacement projects.

“BASF is committed to providing sustainable and high-performing products to address the world’s rising water demand. Secure water supply is one of the biggest challenges especially for the arid region of the Middle East,” says Marcus Fuest, Global Marketing Water Chemicals, BASF. “Our portfolio of differentiating water treatment chemicals, investments in product innovations and the collective expertise of our globally operating team are helping our customers meet their needs of reliable and cost-efficient water treatment.
