Axens is an international provider of advanced technologies, catalysts, adsorbents and services to the refining, petrochemical, gas and alternative fuels industries. The main scope of Axens’ business is focused on the conversion of oil, gas, biomass and coal to fuels and major petrochemical intermediates.

Our ambition is to be the reference technology company for applications in refining, petrochemicals and gas processing. We are also active in industrial water treatment markets.

Actively preparing for the future, we aim to be a leader in alternative fuels: conversion of renewable lipids to diesel and jet fuel, production of high-quality distillates from direct coal-liquefaction and the manufacture of liquid products through the conversion of synthesis gas from various feedstocks such as natural gas, biomass and coal.
