About Material and Chemical Research Laboratories

Material and Chemical Research Laboratories has been engaged in the area of materials research for more than 40 years since its foundation. The focused area evolved from tradition industries such as textile, petrochemical, steel, ceramics, into advanced materials research to cope with the challenge of quick change in world industries. The R&D achievement of the center is critical to the development of Taiwan’s electronics, optoelectronics, flat panel display, energy storage, and others to address the world competition faced by local industries. In addition to solving the problems encountered by local industries, the center is also the pioneer in developing high-end material and component technologies leading to next-generation products with innovation and self-sustained intellectual property strategy. In collaboration with local industry partners and through an open innovation platform, the center has built up enabling technologies by involving world class institutes and academia.

With synergistic capabilities of industrial materials, chemical engineering and nanotechnology R&D, the Material and Chemical Research Laboratories is playing a leading role in materials R&D, and IP creation jointly with local industries to build up Taiwan’s competitiveness. The value creation by integrating technology services and leading innovative R&D has been realized with spun-off talents and new start-up companies from the center. The center is devoted to boosting traditional industries’ competitiveness and the growth of emerging industries including green energy, biomedical and biomass materials with the strategic integration of generic technologies and applied technologies. Currently the Labs are dedicated to the key technologies development as follows:

  • Cutting-edge ICT electronics materials, including flexible/printable devices, IC substrate and green materials
  • Green energy materials and devicesincluding lithium ion battery, photovoltaic, energy saving, solid state lighting, fuel cell and super-capacitor
  • High value-added chemical materials, including high performance fiber, petrochemical industry materials and fine/specialty chemicals
  • Sustainable environment and social benefits related, including water resources treatment, bio-based materials, health care, green building materials, safety assessment and emergent gears/supplies
