Chemours is a different kind of chemistry company, driven by our purpose to create a better world through the power of our chemistry. With a world-class portfolio, we provide solutions for industries ranging from automotive, paints, and laminates to advanced electronics, construction, energy, and telecommunications, helping to make a world that is more colorful, capable, and cleaner.
Chemours' chemistry is a vital part of our everyday lives, enabling virtually everything people touch including many products we use every single day. From smart phones to other advanced electronics, high speed communications and connected devices via the Internet of Things, to more climate friendly refrigerants in our homes and cars—chemistry is at work.
And increasingly, we are enabling technologies and innovations that are more environmentally friendly including electric vehicles, clean energy such as hydrogen, coatings that create durable and advanced infrastructure, and more energy-efficient cooling. The world needs our chemistry so we are hard at work bringing solutions that are better, safer, more reliable and sustainable thanks to our chemistry.

Striving for Continuous Innovation to Meet Global Needs
By 2030, the global middle class will have more than doubled. This will translate into billions of people wanting not just better things, but better lives. Here at the intersection of demand and opportunity, Chemours can make a huge difference. We seize new opportunities to meet the challenges of this unique moment with products that are both more efficient to produce and use and are more reliable, safer, and environmentally responsible.
- We are at the heart of fuel cell technology with Nafion™ membranes that enable green hydrogen, a clean energy source that emits water vapor instead of combustion
- We have evolved the chemistry of automotive air conditioning and created Opteon™ YF, a refrigerant with a 99.9% reduction in global warming potential (GWP)*
- We are changing the chemistry of pigments, offering Ti-Pure™ TS-6300 for paints, a product that can cover in one coat
Chemours has technical centers and R&D facilities that are located at a number of our production sites as well as six standalone labs across major regions of the world. These locations give us the opportunity to find solutions by harnessing the brainpower of our partners in the United States, China, Switzerland, and other areas.
