Ahlstrom partners with Dow on water filtration applications

DW&PS will incorporate Ahlstrom’s high performance Disruptor filter medium into a new set of drinking water purification products that provide excellent pathogen rejection while operating at high flow and low pressure.

Ahlstrom’s Disruptor is a nanoalumina technology designed for a wide range of water filtration applications.

“One of the key goals in our product development is to create products that purify air and liquids in a sustainable way. We are excited about the opportunity to work with Dow since we see a wealth of opportunities for providing pure water solutions through combining our expertise with Dow’s industry-leading product offering,” said Fulvio Capussotti, Ahlstrom’s executive vice president of Advanced Filtration.

“Global trends such as population growth and urbanization put pressure on already strained water sources,” said Snehal Desai, global business director for DW&PS. “We see a real need for new innovations to expand access to clean safe drinking water in an easy, effective and sustainable way. Our collaboration with Ahlstrom extends our product offering to people who need effective water treatment but may not have access to pumps or electricity.”
