Creating Performance Technology
The Catalysts business unit is a leading global catalyst supplier with a long history of innovation and expertise in catalysis, building on the capability of predecessor company Süd-Chemie.
Our catalysts contribute significantly to value creation in our customers’ operations, ensuring that finite raw materials and energy are used efficiently in the production of industrial chemicals, plastics, and fuels. Our products enable the use of alternative raw materials – such as natural gas, coal and biomass – as chemical and energy feedstocks, and are used to clean emissions from industrial processes and combustion engines to limit the impact on the environment.
We are committed to R&D and customer service to ensure that our products are well positioned to meet the global challenges of raw material scarcity, energy efficiency and responsible care for our environment.
We create added value by appreciating the needs of our customers – with competitive and innovative solutions. The needs of our employees – by adhering to our company values. The needs of our shareholders – with above-average returns. And the needs of our environment – by acting sustainably.
