Clariant opens new catalysts office in Shandong, China
New branch and team to enable closer relations with customers in central and northern China.

MUNICH, GERMANY: Clariant said that it is opening a new office for its catalysts business in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China. This will focus on providing enhanced services for customers in central and northern China.

An essential requirement for industries in the region is the optimal production of chemicals such as formaldehyde. Clariant offers several leading catalyst technologies to answer this need. One example is the new FAMAX DS catalyst series, which enables the production of high-quality formaldehyde with exceptional efficiency and very low energy consumption.

Shandong as the province also has the most number of refineries, Clariant offers their leading fuel upgrading catalyst to support their rapid growth. S Zorb catalyst enables refineries' gasoline product to meet the latest China V requirement, with low hydrogen consumption and RON (research octane number) loss.

With China's growing focus on improved air quality, another key concern for producers and the public is emission control. Clariant's EnviCat VOC catalyst presents a powerful and economical solution to this challenge. The high-performance catalyst effectively removes harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and carbon monoxide while significantly reducing the energy consumption of plants

"Proximity is crucial for our customers and our company. Therefore, we are actively expanding our businesses in China, and providing more autonomy in decision making at points closest to our customers. This allows us to clearly understand their opportunities and challenges so that we can offer tailor-made support for China's industrial transformation through our innovative and sustainable catalyst technologies," said Thomas Wenger, head of business unit catalysts, Clariant China.
