Clariant Catalysts and Tianjin University (TJU) have announced a long-term, strategic partnership that will focus on the research and development of new catalysts.

“Clariant is honoured to cooperate with such a highly ranked university in China. We are convinced that the results of this important research initiative will benefit our customers globally, but particularly in the local Chinese market,” said Marvin Estenfelder, Head of R&D at Clariant Catalysts.

The partnership will establish the “Clariant-TJU Academy”. Prof. Donghan Jin, President of Tianjin University said:“This pioneering academy offers our students opportunities to gain industrial experience with Clariant’s scientists and it enhances the industrial catalysis knowledge of our researchers and faculties. The cooperation also provides a way for us to commercialise the joint research results using Clariant’s established infrastructure.”

Founded in 1895, Tianjin University is the oldest university in the modern history of China and a high ranking university in the country, ranked number 1 in the field of Chemical Engineering and Technology by the Chinese Ministry of Education for the fourth consecutive time.
