The Catalysts business unit of Clariant is a leading global and independent manufacturer of high-performance catalysts for use in the chemicals, plastics, and oil and gas industries.

Our long history of innovation and expertise in catalysis builds on the capabilities of our predecessor company, Süd-Chemie.

We offer an extensive portfolio of catalyst solutions, built on innovation and partnerships for a variety of applications, including petrochemical and fuel refining catalysts, synthesis gas catalysts, chemical catalysts, emission control catalysts, and zeolites materials for a variety of applications. We also collaborate with customers to develop customized catalyst solutions for specific requirements.

Clariant’s innovative catalysts and adsorbents deliver significant and sustainable customer value by driving higher production throughput, lowering energy consumption, and reducing hazardous emissions from industrial processes and combustion engines.

 

Our catalysts and technologies also enable the use of alternative feedstock, such as natural gas, coal, and biomass as raw materials for chemical and fuel production. In doing so, Clariant Catalysts addresses the global challenges of raw material scarcity, energy efficiency, and responsible care for the environment.
