GE, Sealed Air’s Diversey Business Expand Global Water Alliance to India
Companies will provide water & energy management services to India’s food and beverage industry
GE and Sealed Air’s Diversey business are bringing their global water alliance to the food and beverage markets in India. GE and Diversey will provide advanced water and energy management services in the region, a first for the one-year-old alliance.
Specifically within the food and beverage industry, the alliance’s water offerings will support wastewater reuse projects and the reduction of freshwater consumption in the brewery, dairy, beverage and snack markets. In India, Sealed Air’s Diversey business will sell and service GE’s water treatment chemicals, water and process equipment, membrane and cartridge filtration products, analytical instruments and energy management solutions.
“The alliance brings together two organizations with complementary strengths and shared values, thereby enabling both GE and Sealed Air Diversey to serve our existing Indian customer base even better, while affording us the opportunity to reach more customers,“ said Hoshang Subawalla, business leader, India—water and process technologies for GE Power & Water.
The companies established a pilot program in 2010 to demonstrate the link between water treatment and cleaning and sanitation processes. The result was strong customer response following demonstrable improvements in water use and conservation as well as the overall efficiency of customer operations.
In October 2011, GE and Diversey formed an alliance to deliver water and energy management services to Diversey’s cleaning and sanitation customers around the world. The alliance aims to manage water more efficiently while also providing clean and safe food and drink supplies.
