Johnson Matthey Process Technologies develops and designs chemical processes and their individual core technologies. It then licenses these to chemical producers to use when building a new plant.

As part of the licensing package, we transfer the basic engineering know-how to the client's engineers. We also provides ongoing process and technical support through the detailed engineering, commissioning and post-acceptance of the plant to help clients reach optimum plant performance.

Our license portfolio includes processes and technologies for the production of:

  • Biodiesel
  • Butanediol (BDO), tetrahydrofuran (THF) and gamma-butyrolactone (GBL)
  • Choline chloride (ChCl)
  • Dimethyl ether (DME)
  • Dimethylformamide (DMF)
  • Ethyl acetate
  • Gas-to-liquids (GTL)
  • Methanol
  • Methylamines
  • Natural detergent alcohols (NDAs)/fatty alcohols
  • N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP)
  • Oxo alcohols
  • Propylene glycol
  • Purified terephthalic acid (PTA)
  • Substitute natural gas (SNG)
  • Vinyl chloride monomer (VCM).
