Dow Microbial Control opens application center in Australia



Published June 16, 2011

Dow Microbial Control recently opened a Customer Application Center (CAC) in Melbourne, Australia. Dow Microbial Control customers in Australia and New Zealand will now have access to state-of-the-art testing laboratories and innovative formulations, in line with local regulatory requirements.


As an ever developing industry, the global biocides and specialty chemicals industries are growing at an average of 10 to 15 percent, with Australia and New Zealand experiencing growth rates in these key areas of about eight percent year-on-year. In particular, shale gas is one new area of business that is expected to drive the market in the next five years as Australia prepares to harness this untapped natural gas resource. 


"With new energy sources, an area that deals with complex microbial challenges, becoming increasingly important in Australia, we feel this is a timely opportunity to launch the Customer Application Centre in Melbourne," said Mark Henning, global general manager for Dow Microbial Control. "The facility will be a valuable resource to various industries that require innovative and expert knowledge to help solve new challenges to microbial problems. Customers can work together with experts to address microbial control needs and develop unique product formulations that will help us meet local regulations and environmental standards and conditions.”
