Chemours to build $150m R&D Hub

To mark the beginning of construction, University of Delaware leadership, the Governor, federal elected officials, and other local and state officials joined Chemours for the groundbreaking event at the STAR Campus yesterday

USA: Chemours is to build a new $150m state-of-the-art research and innovation facility on the University of Delaware’s Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus. 

The Chemours Discovery Hub will work with the University of Delaware (UD) to conduct research into new process, product, and application development. In addition to being a major developer and manufacturer of refrigerants, Chemours is also a global leader in titanium technologies and other chemical solutions.

Construction of the new 312,000ft² (30,000m²) facility is expected to be completed by early 2020.

“This is much more than a brick-and-mortar story; it’s about the discoveries to come that just might change or at least shape the future,” said Chemours president and CEO Mark Vergnano. “The Chemours Discovery Hub will serve as a gathering place—a centre for activity where vision, ambition, intelligence, and creative energy will flourish—not just for years, but for decades to come.
