"Pursue the Harmony
with Nature, -Catalyst-"

President Hirofumi Itoh

Nikki-Universal Co., Ltd. has been engaged in the licensing of petroleum refining and petrochemical processes of UOP LLC, a leading international supplier and licensor of the U.S.A. for such processes as, supplying of process technologies (which include patents and expertise), and manufacturing with the developing of high performance process catalysts since it was established as a joint venture between UOP and JGC Corporation, (a world leading engineering contractor of Japan). Meanwhile, as a respected pioneer of industrial exhaust gas treatment catalyst, we have been developing and supplying purifying catalysts for a cleaner environment, catalysts for energy savings and catalytic technologies to expand its application areas.

Today, our licensed UOP processes are more than 800 units and we have played a predominant role in the petroleum refining and petrochemical industries. In addition, we have excellent and experienced capability to manufacture and supply the following catalysts:

  • Petroleum refining and petrochemical catalysts for UOP processes
  • Industrial exhaust gas treatment catalysts
  • Gas purifying catalysts for saving energy
  • Normal temperature catalysts for home/office appliances, such as electric appliances and air cleaners
  • Fuel cell related catalysts

For nearly 50 years we have been manufacturing unique and original catalysts in the areas of energy and environment. During this period we have been focused and committed to a "Better Environment for the Future", continuing research and development; supplying many products to the markets; and responding to customer's needs. We will continue to make persistent efforts to be a higher level technology provider encouraged by great support and appreciation of our customers.

Catalysts began extensively being used in the 20th century in the industrial scale and have advanced with the growth of petroleum refining and petrochemical industries. In the course of their advancement, environmental issues such as acid rain and petrochemical smog occurred. Catalysts were largely responsible to solve these issues. As generally known, catalysts have tremendous power and it is said that their application area is unlimited.

Our environmental catalyst initially began to purify exhaust gas and in recent years, we have continued to develop and manufacture such products as "environmentally friendly" catalysts which include ambient temperature, and catalysts for home/office appliances.

We intend to proactively continue our social contribution through licensing business and catalytic technologies as well as continue our commitment to "Pursue the Harmony with Nature".
