"The international makeup of the Group will act as a strong complement to the global operations of this leading platform, and we are eager to work together with our fellow consortium members to drive the business forward," added Stephen Toy, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of BroadPeak Global LP.

Dr. Bo Bai, Asia Green Fund's Chairman and CEO, said: "The superior technological suite provided by DuPont Clean Technologies will play an instrumental role in helping countries across the world and particularly Asia Pacific tackle environmental issues, push toward carbon neutrality, reduce pollution from mining, oil refining, and chemical industries and upgrade fuel quality. AGF is excited to partner with a synergistic group of co-investors and a strong management team to further the global green impact of Clean Technologies."

Dr. Raed Al-Rayes, Dussur's CEO, said: "The Clean Technologies business established by DuPont has unique, environmentally focused, advanced capabilities that present strong synergies with Saudi Arabia's strategic industrial sectors.
