The Structure and Foundation of Our Research and Development Approach
In April, 2017, Daicel relocated the "Central Research Center" and "Himeji Technology Head Office" and consolidated them into a new site named "Innovation Park" in Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture. Innovation Park is our R & D base for the creation of new products and the development of innovative process technologies, and promotes technological innovation throughout Daicel.
In addition to “Innovation Park”, our Corporate Research Centers, the foundation of our corporate research, are located at the Kanzaki Plant in Amagasaki, Hyogo Prefecture and the Arai Plant in Myoko, Niigata Prefecture.
