70+ years pushing limits

in science and engineering so we can do the things others say can’t be done - day after day


We invest in fundamental research, both by our 300+ world class scientists, and in collaboration with leading research bodies around the world. We are founded on the belief that applied fundamental research is key to build and retain a leading position in catalysis, which is why we spend more than 10% of revenues annually applied to support R&D efforts;

Our research areas include:

  • Fundamental research
  • Catalyst characterization
  • Catalyst development
  • Catalyst formulation
  • Reactor and process modeling
  • Process development
  • Catalyst and process testing
  • Process impact studies
  • Equipment development
  • Pilot plant studies
  • Scale-up studies

We have research collaboration with more than 20 universities and research institutes and sponsor professors and PhD students. Furthermore, we have hundreds of collaboration projects running around the world.
