Chemicals & Petrochemicals

More than ninety percent of all chemical products are derived from crude oil. However, with the declining quality of oil and increasing energy prices, the chemical industry is required to seek alternatives. New value chains are in demand in order to use alternative resource materials such as natural gas or renewable raw materials in a cost-efficient way. These challenges are addressed by new chemical processes or the improvement of existing processes for which the optimization of catalysts plays a key role. The technologies and services of hte enable testing capacities to be expanded without increase of time and costs. We offers solutions for a broad range of applications:
