Fine & specialty chemicals cover the manufacture of specialty products used in everything from adhesives, sealants and coatings to pharmaceuticals, detergents and electronic goods.
Highly complex with a huge portfolio of patented technologies, this sector is under growing pressure to meet increasingly stringent safety and environmental regulations and hone competitiveness, particularly as more and more fine chemicals are evolving into commodities.
Manufacturers are challenged to constantly innovate in the search for environmentally cleaner reactions and smart solutions to highly specialised problems. Our gas-enabled technologies can help fine & specialty chemical players meet these challenges.
