The Chemours Company
We are catalysts for change. Our chemistry makes processes more efficient, products more valuable, and businesses more competitive. We are also catalysts for better. We help meet global demand for higher living standards in ways that are safer for everyone.
By 2030, the global middle class will more than double in size, from 2 billion to 4.9 billion people. That translates into billions of people wanting not just better things, but better lives. It is here at the intersection of demand and opportunity that The Chemours Company vision of higher value chemistry can make a difference. We seize new opportunities to meet the challenges of this unique moment in time, with products that are not only more efficient to make and to use; but also more reliable, safer, and more environmentally responsible.
We have evolved the chemistry of automotive air conditioning and created Opteon™ YF, a refrigerant with a 99.9% reduction in global warming potential (GWP).* We expect HFO technology including Opteon™ to be in over 18 million vehicles by the end of 2016.
We are changing the chemistry of pigments, offering Ti-Pure™ Select TS-6300 for paints that can cover in one coat.
We are energizing the chemistry of solvents, enabling rapid, low-cost growth in the Latin American mining industry with our sodium cyanides.
No one country has a monopoly on innovation, which is why we place such a high importance on our lab facilities around the world. In fact, we have technical centers and R&D facilities located at a number of our production sites, 10 stand-alone labs spread across the major regions of the world. These locations give us the opportunity to collectively find solutions by harnessing the brainpower of our partners in China, Switzerland, the US, and more.
We power global change on a molecular level.
Chemistry is a living thing. It is always evolving and changing, like us. Our focus is on harnessing the power of chemistry as a catalyst to help the ordinary become the extraordinary—this is our commitment to becoming a higher value chemistry company. We collaborate with customers to make cars cooler, homes warmer, food fresher, colors bolder. We use chemistry to change lives, shape markets, and redefine industries, and we do it one improvement at a time.
