Cabot to open ‘clean technology’ research centre in Shanghai
On 2 June, US carbon black manufacturer Cabot said it will open a research centre in Shanghai to develop “clean technologies and specialty chemicals”. The centre, currently under construction and scheduled to open at the beginning of 2017, aims to help reduce emissions of toxic chemicals and create products based on local needs. According to the Shanghai Daily, China reportedly contributed 20 per cent of Cabot’s sales last year.
Cabot has been present in Shanghai for nearly 30 years.
