I picked D initially too, missing the pronoun error of using "them" for "each employee"

C sounds good now

C fellas...it's right. "them" is plural so it has to be "it"

noboru: the correct idiom is "prohibit x from doing y"
But the problem with D is "them" can refer to company or employee.
Hence "C" is correct.

X PROHIBITS THAT Y BE Z = this is unidiomatic. "that" cannot be used for nouns which is used in this sentence (MGMAT SC - chapter on pronouns)
take it easy!

A. prohibiting that its water purification methods be disclosed to companies --> incorrect usage: "prohibit that x do y"
B. prohibiting them from the disclosing of its water purification methods to any company --> "each employee" needs singular pronoun
C. prohibiting disclosure of its water purification methods to any company --> Correct idiom: "prohibit x from doing y"
D. that would prohibit them from disclosure of its water purification methods to companies --> "each employee" needs singular pronoun
E. that would prohibit its water purification methods to be disclosed to a company --> "prohibit x to do y" is incorrect
