HOUSTON (ICIS)--DuPont has opened the second phase of its China Research and Development (R&D) Center, which focuses on new applications in solar energy, bio-based and automotive materials, the US-based chemicals major announced on Monday.
The expansion at the DuPont China R&D Center in the Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park of Shanghai adds 17,500 square metres to the facility, and will house an additional 150 researchers.
“We see greater potential for innovation in China since the government has been aggressively implementing the strategy of innovation-driven development at a faster pace,” said Tony Su, president of DuPont Greater China. “With this expansion, we will be able to foster more collaboration with local governments, companies, academics and organisations in China to find science-based solutions for a sustainable future.”
