Catalyst manufacturing based on your recipe made exclusively for your use.

Clariant offers a large variety of catalysts readily available “off-the-shelf”. However, technology developers often invent novel and proprietary catalysts and need a trusted partner to commercialize their formulations. Clariant’s manufacturing know-how allows us to efficiently scale from grams to tons. Through collaboration and partnership, we bring new catalyst technologies to the market, and we ensure your intellectual property remains yours by implementing strict IP management.
