Wison Engineering and Tianjin University to establish R&D center
SHANGHAI -- Wison Engineering Services, the largest private sector chemical EPC service provider in China, has announced that Wison Engineering Ltd., one of the company’s indirect, non-wholly owned subsidiaries, has entered into a cooperative agreement with Tianjin University to co-establish the Tianjin University – Wison Research & Development Center for Energy and Chemical Technologies.
The collaboration will not only drive the commercialization of energy and chemical technology, but will also initiate research studies featuring cutting-edge technology in the sector to promote the integration of industrial and academic research. As such, the transformation of research results to productivity will be expedited, while more proprietary technologies and facilities with intellectual property rights will be developed by both parties.
The primary objective of the joint R&D center, the company said, is to develop leading synthesis gas-to-ethanol technology in China, and to promote relevant technology in international markets. In the next five years, the joint R&D center aims to complete the development and engineering of various synthesis gas-to-ethanol roadmaps.
The establishment of the joint R&D center represents a closer cooperative relationship, following the cooperation in coal-to-ethylene glycol technologies between both parties in May 2011.
