Dürr Group has acquired the industrial enviromental technology business of U.S.-based Babcock & Wilcox (B&W), namely B&W MEGTEC and B&W Universal effective October 5th, 2018. The businesses will become part of Dürr's environmental technology division, Clean Technology Systems (CTS), with MEGTEC operating as Dürr MEGTEC LLC and Universal as Dürr Universal, Inc.

This merger supports Dürr’s plan to expand its environmental technology business and creates one of the leading global suppliers of air pollution and noise control technologies offering companies from all industries a broad range of solutions for tightening emissions regulations worldwide. The diverse product line includes technologies for reducing hydrocarbons, odor, particulate, acid gasses, nitrogen oxides, etc. from virtually any industrial air exhaust stream. Our Universal Team even extends our offer to another pollutant area - noise, further increasing our capability to serve our customers. We also have very interesting technologies in coating and drying for the production of lithium ion battery materials; an area directly linked with protecting the environment.

Going forward, we are focused on fulfilling all our commitments to all our customers. In fact, with a wider pool of resources and the broadest technical expertise in the market, our goal is to deliver ever better customer service with a continuing vision to be “best in class” in this area. For customers with existing or on-going projects, nothing changes for you: your contact persons, their email addresses and contact numbers remain the same and projects will continue as usual.

We want to affirm, we are one united team, with offices across the globe, but with only one goal in mind; to create strong partnerships with our customers and provide the best technology and most responsive service available anywhere for the lifetime of their equipment.
