Germany-based Dürr has completed the acquisition of the industrial environmental technology businesses of U.S. company Babcock & Wilcox, which provide air pollution and noise control technologies.

Dürr will add the regional offices of the two environmental technology specialists, MEGTEC and Universal, to its Clean Technology Systems (CTS) environmental technology division. MEGTEC specializes in technologies for air pollution control, such as wet and dry electrostatic precipitators, fabric filters and solvent recovery systems, along with industrial dryers and coating systems for lithium-ion battery electrodes. Universal is a supplier of acoustic solutions and specializes in sound attenuation systems and air filters. This acquistion adds noise control as a new dimension to the CTS environmental business, the company says.

“This new combination establishes a much wider and stronger product portfolio and includes the services of 1,500 highly skilled workforce with sales of around €400 million,” says Dr. Daniel Schmitt, CEO of CTS. “We are well placed to offer our customers all exhaust-air purification technologies from a single source along with advanced acoustic solutions.”
