DuPont Water Solutions will open a Reverse Osmosis (RO) production line in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) in early 2019.

RO technology is used to demineralize brackish water and desalinate seawater for a variety of applications, including food and beverage processing and water reuse. 

The facility will manufacture, distribute and supply Filmtec Reverse Osmosis Elements to the Saudi Arabian market and meet demand for membranes in MENA (Middle East and North Africa), Eastern Europe, India, China and Southeast Asia. 

This production line is providing game-changing innovation to help municipalities, businesses and people thrive by enabling sustainable access to clean, high-quality water​,” said Marc Doyle, COO, Specialty Products Division, DowDuPont. 

The facility, in Jubail Industrial City II, will enhance production capabilities at the Sadara Chemical Company complex, a joint venture developed by Dow and Saudi Aramco.  

It is the first RO manufacturing facility built outside of the US by the Water Solutions business. The facility replicates and expands on the production employed at its parent facility in Edina, Minnesota, US.
