Salt plays an essential role in daily life. It is the basis for thousands of products that we use every day, and will also help society to become more sustainable in a variety of important – and sometimes unexpected - ways.

Getting ready for innovation’s third era

A look back at the chemical industry in innovation terms clearly shows that there have been two significant eras of development. The first, which dates back to the early 1800s, involved the development of products such as paints or soaps that could be derived from natural oils and minerals.

Organic peroxides, an essential ingredient for everyday life

They are essential ingredients in many polymer products, helping to produce them, improve their properties, and make them easier to process or recycle.
