A subsidiary of BASF – We create chemistry

Accelerated Catalyst Research and Process Development

The increasing shortages of conventional raw materials forces a wide ranging investigation of how the chemical industry responds to the availability of alternative feedstock with new materials value chains, to create an advantage over competitors with access to cheap conventional feeds. In response to rising energy prices the importance of developing and optimizing energy saving processes is also increasing.

The solution in many cases lies in the investment in new chemical processes, the optimization of existing processes or improving sustainability. The key to this is in new catalyst development or the optimization of existing catalysts and catalyzed processes. In order to increase the chances of groundbreaking new catalyst discoveries and to develop or improve new and existing processes, the experimental research must be expanded. By broadening the experimental research, development times and costs are typically increased.


We offer R&D solutions including the following reaction types:

  • Oxidations
  • Partial Oxidations
  • Hydrogenations
  • Dehydrogenations
  • Gas-to-Chemicals
  • Amination
  • Aromatization
  • Methane Activation
  • CO2 Utilization
  • Polymerization
