We help our customers meet their sustainability goals at more than one million locations around the world. Our combined team of more than 25,000 sales-and-service representatives delivers a broad range of solutions that help provide clean water, safe food, abundant energy and healthy environments on a global scale. In 2012, we continued to offer our customers innovations that helped them do more with less, including:

  • Launching Apex, our next generation warewashing program, which delivers superior cleaning results while reducing water and energy use for customers.
  • Launching Aquanomic™, a laundry system that reduces water use by up to 40 percent and energy use by up to 50 percent.
  • Introducing our 3D TRASAR technology to many of our Food & Beverage processing customers, a technology that combines chemistry, remote services and monitoring and control to help customers improve efficiency while reducing water and
  • Reducing packaging waste and transportation costs for customers in additional industries by replacing liquid chemistries with solids.
  • Employing our peracetic acid chemistry in our Energy Services business to remove iron and microorganisms from the water produced in shale gas recovery, allowing unconventional oil and gas producers to recycle process water and reduce overall water use.
