For our technology, R&D is a key factor in developing new competitive advantages.
Our technologies benefit from a close relationship with R&D from our own Oleochemical Technology laboratory and pilot plant facilities commissioned in 2016 at Rayong, Thailand. In addition we can draw upon thyssenkrupp’s Corporate R&D facilities in Germany. This enables us to test recipes, conduct feedstock or product characterization, guarantee scale up parameters, and optimise process conditions for maximum operational and economic performance. In addition, we carry out fundamental product and process development for clients on a cooperative or contract basis.
