Evonik will act jointly with BRICI to develop new processes for Sinopec.
“Starting up the OSN lab is a consistent step in our growth plan for the attractive membrane business,” said Dr Dominic Stoerkle, vice president and general manager of Evonik’s High Performance Polymers Business Line Asia Pacific. “Based on the close partnership with BRICI and our active participation in the open platform, we anticipate further growth to result from the new joint OSN laboratory.”
Professor Li Hongbo, president of the Yanshan Branch of Sinopec BRICI, said: “The joint OSN laboratory is a novel approach to fostering collaboration. It is well aligned with our regional innovation strategy and future development vision. Evonik will contribute advanced technology, which Sinopec will make accessible to various business stages. With Evonik’s support, we will also build up a pilot plant unit in one of Sinopec’s production sites as an OSN reference plant.”
