Tianhe Develops Chinese R&D Center
Tianhe Chemicals recently opened a 6,000 square meter additives research and development facility in Jinzhou, China.
Jinzhou DPF-TH Chemicals Co. Ltd., one of the four companies that represent Tianhe, opened the lab in Jinzhou, Liaoning province, where it is based, in January. Construction began in 2013.
The five-story building is made up of laboratories, analysis equipment and training rooms. In addition to routine test and inspection equipment, it is also equipped with internationally advanced large-scale analytical instruments to carry out a series of work including pilot scaled up experiment, raw material evaluation, in-process control, finished product performance evaluation and others to better support new product development and existing product upgrading, Tianhe noted on its website.
Tianhe said three departments research and development, quality control and production will use the facility in collaboration.
The company also recently announced plans to open a 220,000 square foot R & D center in Bengaluru, India, this year and a blending facility in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, by the end of 2015. It also says it will begin some type of manufacturing operation possibly for toll blending in Houston by mid-2016.
