Our scientists have invented and engineered many of the proprietary technologies that have now become industry standards. This is because we continually invest in Research and Development.
Central to our approach has been the formation of dedicated teams focused on Product Discovery, Process Development, Application Testing, Formulation, Analytical and Customer Technical Service (CTS).
We also divide our activities into Technology Platforms to allow us to concentrate on clearly defined research areas. This strategy has created an innovative pipeline of new products for different markets.
To support our scientists and technicians we have set up worldwide testing and laboratory facilities for testing fuel additives for performance and cost-effectiveness. Our scientists can optimise formulations in line with customer requirements and specifications.
Our Performance Chemicals business has centres of excellence at each of our major manufacturing sites in Germany, North America and the United Kingdom. These sites are equipped with state-of-the-art synthesis laboratories for developing innovative technologies appropriate to our key markets.
We also invest heavily in our people. We have developed a science ladder to encourage our scientists to develop their scientific knowledge and expertise to the highest level.
Our reputation among the worldwide academic community has also been enhanced by our commitment to research. Our scientists publish papers, give lectures and presentations, help to organise conferences, chair and attend committee meetings.
We currently chair four US based committees and three European groups. We sit on a further 13 committees, including some with a global remit. Our lectures/presentations are delivered in Asia, Europe, North and South America. We collaborate with a number of leading Universities in the UK, including Aberdeen , Bangor , Glasgow , University College London , University of Leeds , Imperial College , Manchester , Nottingham and Warwick.
