HOUSTON (ICIS news)--US Dow Chemical’s water solutions business and Rohm and Haas’ ion exchange resins business have merged to create Dow Water and Process Solutions, Dow said on Tuesday.

The new business, based in Edina, Minnesota, comes as a result of Dow’s acquisition of Rohm and Haas, which closed on 1 April.

“The addition of Rohm and Haas solidifies Dow Water & Process Solutions as the industry leader in ion exchange resins,” Dow said. “The larger scale of [the business] will improve the business’ ability to invest in the innovative research and technology required to provide reliable, high-quality products and services.”

The new business has a strong presence in the Middle East, where it will look to become more efficient within segments including industrial and municipal water, industrial processes, pharmaceuticals, power, residential water and waste and water reuse, Dow said.

“By combining Rohm and Haas’ significant process and application experience in ion exchange resins with Dow’s best-in-class enabling component technologies and industry leadership position, this new integrated organisation will offer customers a broader portfolio of solutions,” Dow said.
