Request Number N551937
Author Kevin Andrews
Need details

ICL Innovation seeks innovative technologies which will enhance the biocidal activity of brominated biocides with additional functionality that includes but is not limited to:  corrosion prevention, biofilm dispersion, scale prevention, and pH correction.




ICL-IP Microbial Solutions produces a wide range of biocides based on chlorine and bromine.  These biocides provide solutions to water treatment needs for swimming pools and spas, cooling towers, pulp and paper facilities, and other industrial water treatment.  ICL-IP's biocides permit re-use of industrial water, improve the quality of industrial water discharge, and enhance safety of recreational water facilities.


ICL-IP supports its biocides with a network of offices and distributors that maintain local inventories and with extensive regulatory support to private labeling and sub-registration.  ICL-IP manufactures it biocides, using the world's most economical source of bromine, in facilities certified under ISO 9000-9002 quality standards and ISO 14001 environmental standards.
