Developing core technologies to drive future growth
GS Caltex established the R&D Center in 1986. The center has developed core technologies in diverse areas to sharpen our competitive edge and nurture future growth drivers.
The R&D Center is focused on the development of high value-added products in the petroleum, petrochemical and polymer materials sectors in addition to technologies to increase productivity. They also conduct analysis that helps maintain operation of existing businesses.
the R&D center is working on core technologies related to catalysts, polymerization and polymer products to reinforce the competitiveness in the olefin business what is launched recently.
We also try to pursue developments in the biochemicals and environmentally friendly technology and products.
The R&D Center will continue efforts in product and technology development to maintain growth at GS Caltex.
GS Caltex R&D Center is developing technologies to produce polymer products that meet customer needs. We are actively developing PE/PP products for various purposes (film, pipe) as well as catalyst technology for downstream products in petrochemicals.
