CCSS Industrial Affiliates
UOP is a long-term collaborator with CCSS. The Center has partnered with UOP on a variety of projects, from exploratory catalyst research to process commercialization. Part of Honeywell’s Performance Materials and Technologies business group, UOP has more than 3,000 active patents, a global presence, and a century of experience using breakthrough chemistry and engineering to power global growth. Honeywell UOP operates the world’s leading centers of research for the catalytic processing of hydrocarbons, and its partnership with CCSS is part of that commitment to research and development.
In 2011, CCSS and the Cluster of Excellence "Unifying Concepts in Catalysis" (UniCat) in Berlin, Germany solidified their relationship with a memorandum of understanding that recognizes the similar aims of both institutions and a belief that collaboration brings added value to all involved parties through joint workshops and exchanging trainees.
