Why DuPont

Possibility flows with us.


Enabling the world to thrive

The possibilities that flow with water are abundant. That’s why we continuously pursue pioneering innovation in essential and reliable solutions, and help customers like you across the globe confidently take hold of opportunities that will grow a cleaner world together. 

What we do best

Providing access to safer drinking water. Maximizing reuse and efficiency

As a global leader in purification and specialty-separation technologies, we provide state-of-the-art membrane science and ion exchange solutions that help make drinking water safer and cleaner for homes and communities; help industries and markets operate more effectively, efficiently, and sustainably; and make water-scarcity challenges more manageable, wherever they arise.

Helping to solve intractable water challenges: it’s our commitment. Following through with the broadest, proven, end-to-end portfolio of water-treatment and separation technologies so you can produce, purify, and extract some of the most commercially important products around the globe: it’s what we do best.

How we’re different

Placing you at the center of innovation 

When water resources are scarce and water quality, availability, and consistency are variable, offering high-performing ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, ion exchange, and electrodeionization products is not always enough.

Our collaborative approach places customer challenges at the heart of our innovation. We work closely with customers to understand their situational issues, including their water-treatment and specialty separation requirements. We then bring our deep understanding of the industry’s greatest challenges — both short- and long-term — to shape tailored, integrated solutions that meet real application needs

The value of working together

Ensuring quality and delivering worth

Not only do our premium solutions rest on decades of development and testing, but they can also provide significant ROI for customers. A textile plant in India, for example, piloted our minimal liquid discharge (MLD)  approach to improve water efficiency. It saw increased production, a 75-percent reduction of cleaning costs, an energy cost savings of 10 percent, and significantly longer element life.

The value of working with us goes beyond benefitting from our product portfolios, however. We provide training, support, and services, and bring our local expertise to global markets, making knowledge more available for partners across the water value chain.
