Solenis LLC signed a definitive agreement to purchase all shares of Quimatec Produtos Químicos Ltda. and Locatec de Araraquara Ltda-Me. The deal will broaden Solenis’ offering in the bioethanol market by leveraging Quimatec’s position in Brazil’s sugar-to-ethanol industry.

Quimatec customers will be able to utilize Solenis’ water treatment products and services in the sugar industry, and Solenis can employ Quimatec’s process chemistries in traditional heavy-industry markets.
