In 1940 Dr. Haldor Topsoe founded the company on the belief that only through applied fundamental research would we build and retain our position as second to none in catalysis. This notion still governs the company’s business activities:
Research - technology - catalysts
The synergy between research and development, process design, engineering, catalyst production and sales form the basis of the continuous optimisation of our catalysts and technologies.
Topsoe’s research activities are focused according to feedback from industrial practice. Engineering design parameters are firmly based on in-house knowledge and technology resulting from research and development efforts. Our catalysts and processes are developed in close collaboration between research, engineering, and production, ensuring the creation of catalysts and processes, which meet and exceed clients’ expectations.
Advising our clients
The Topsoe business model is unique, integrating all aspects from fundamental knowledge to practical implementation to achieve optimum industrial efficiency. This ensures an ideal platform for advising clients and promotes state-of-the-art plants with excellent performance.
Topsoe’s commitment to catalysis has created a strong and multi-facetted business with a product portfolio spanning from catalysts to proprietary equipment, process design, engineering and service.
We are known for our commitment to catalysis – a commitment we share with our clients.
