Our research

  Reserarch and Innovation
Our Research & Innovation is at the core of our business. Solvay’s laboratories are strategically located across Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the USA. And our commitment to R&I upholds our reputation as a leader in our field. It is embedded in our past and future, as we continue to lead the way in pioneering technologies that ask more from chemistry.  

Over 150 years ago Ernest Solvay made his technological breakthrough with the ammonia-soda process. Since then we have pioneered new concepts such as biosourcing as alternative to fossil raw materials, silica for energy efficient tires, or high-performance polymers reducing weight of cars or airplanes  - even Solar Impulse.

Our R&I employees across the globe continue to push boundaries and we continue to excel, propelling this field into the future.
