The products will alleviate the dual challenge facing industrial water users of water costs at the front end and discharge fees at the other. In addition, facilities that are reusing and recycling now have to treat water that is more fouled and therefore more expensive to treat.
 
The product line consists of four new elements helping meet customer needs in challenging waters across various markets such as fossil power generation, chemical & petrochemical, steel & metal and textiles. The products include the Dow Filmtec Fortilife CR100 Element which is engineered specifically for plants where biofouling is a problem.
