Clariant’s Catalysts business unit continues to advance its R&D capabilities. The company recently made an investment to modernise its research facility in Toyama, Japan, preparing it for faster, more efficient experimentation. In addition to being Clariant’s global competence center for nickel-based hydrogenation and styrene catalyst development, the Toyama site is also involved in other research fields, including custom catalysts, emission control, and emerging applications of power-to-x technologies.

Key products developed in Toyama

Two key products developed in Toyama are the NiSat powder catalysts for hydrogenation, and the Styromax styrene production catalysts. Capacity for synthesis and evaluation of NiSat catalysts has now more than doubled. This accelerates new catalyst lead generation and scale-up, while application tests ensure products meet customer requirements. For styrene catalysts, a new test unit allows more accurate simulation of industrial reactor conditions in styrene production. This not only enhances Clariant’s capabilities in styrene catalyst development, but also strengthens cooperation with process licensors.
