De Nora acquires MIOX water-purification business from Johnson Matthey

By Mary Page Bailey |

Industrie De Nora S.p.A. (De Nora; Milan, Italy; www.denora.com) announced it has acquired the Albuquerque-based MIOX business from Johnson Matthey plc (London, U.K.; www.matthey.com) for an undisclosed price.

The acquisition strengthens De Nora’s growing portfolio of water purification technologies that minimize environmental impact through improved energy efficiency, intelligent options, and chemical use reduction. De Nora’s on-site generation product offering includes electrochlorination systems using either seawater or brine for water treatment and biofouling control. The MIOX technology adds knowledge and experience in producing proprietary mixed oxidants on site for advanced applications.

“De Nora brings innovative electrochemical, disinfection, oxidation and filtration solutions to diverse applications around the world. Our expertise and footprint make us a leader in the electrochemical market. Now, the acquisition of MIOX expands that market reach in municipalities and industrial segments, in food and beverage, and propels our presence into cooling tower applications, adding the possibility to choose between hypochlorite and mixed oxidants productions. The MIOX technology complements De Nora’s offering with minimal overlap with our existing ClorTec products,” said Paolo Dellachà, Group CEO of De Nora.

De Nora has been supplying electrodes to MIOX for more than 20 years. “Our long-term relationship will support the integration of our natural synergies, reinforcing De Nora’s leading position in the on-site generation market. Merging our extensive expertise and strong IP will benefit the customers of both companies with more efficient and faster development of new products already in the R&D pipeline.” added Paolo.

“De Nora is a natural fit for MIOX’s cutting-edge technology and its brilliant people,” said Cem Candir, MIOX President. “MIOX has accomplished good growth in recent years especially in the United States Municipal and Industrial markets, and De Nora will enable MIOX to better serve its customers with expanded global equipment servicing capabilities.”
