Johnson Matthey

Johnson Matthey ( is a UK based speciality chemicals company focused on its core skills in catalysis, precious metals, fine chemicals and process technology. The company employs around 10000 people worldwide located in over 30 countries. Johnson Matthey's principal activities are the manufacture of autocatalysts, heavy duty diesel catalysts and pollution control systems, catalysts and components for fuel cells, catalysts and technologies for chemical processes, fine chemicals, chemical catalysts and active pharmaceutical ingredients and the marketing, refining, and fabrication of precious metals. More than half of JM’s products have a direct environmental benefit, a figure that is set to increase as a key part of the company’s growth strategy is to focus on emerging environmental opportunities.


Johnson Matthey’s role in SUCCESS will be in the development of industrially ready methods for the impregnated oxygen carriers, the supply of a large batch (up to 0.5 tonnes) for pilot‐scale testing, and in the support of some of the technical‐economic studies. This will involve materials preparation, and formulation activities coupled with small scale testing and characterisation of the materials pre‐ and post‐testing. Research process engineering work will be carried out in support of product and process understanding.

Johnson Matthey’s participation in SUCCESS will be through the Technology Centres based in Reading and Billingham, UK. These central facilities act as focal points for the  development of new technologies into emerging market applications. At these sites, there are established facilities for the preparation, advanced characterisation and testing of materials, as well as access to pilot scale manufacturing assets and state‐of‐the art analytical and electron optic equipment.
