Clariant Opens Biotech Center

“Alongside the Clariant Innovation Center (CIC) in Frankfurt, the new Clariant Biotech Center (CBC) is another important global research facility for our company”, emphasized Hariolf Kottmann in an address delivered to over 100 representatives from the worlds of politics and business. He went on to outline the importance of Bavaria, and in particular the greater Munich area, as a leading research and development powerhouse in the field of biotechnology.

The move was prompted by an expansion of the company’s activities, with around 100 staff now employed at the CBC. The new building with its laboratory and office space of over 6000 square meters offers excellent conditions for research work. “Establishing a dedicated research center for biotechnology in its own building right at the heart of one of Europe’s biggest biotech hubs is doing far more than just sending out a clear statement – it underpins Clariant’s commitment to innovation, sustainability and profitable growth”, explains André Koltermann.

Since 2006, the Group Biotechnology has successfully implemented projects in the field of renewable raw materials. The focus of this strategic unit is on the development of sustainable bio-based products and processes in the field of chemicals and biofuels.
