Speeding up the global mobility transformation

At Umicore, we are moving further and faster to accelerate the global transition to carbon-free mobility. Thanks to our expertise in clean mobility materials and recycling technologies, we are able to guide you through your company’s transformation journey, from start to finish. Not just by developing the much needed catalyst technology for low-emission combustion engines, but also by supplying high-performance innovative rechargeable battery materials and establishing a leadership position in fuel cell catalysts – all while closing the loop on critical metals.

In other words, we are thinking both short and long-term. We are helping car manufacturers comply with upcoming emission legislation for internal combustion engines in key regions. And at the same time, we are clearing the way for electric mobility. We see it as our obligation to leverage our unique position and expertise to guide you in your transformation journey to sustainable mobility.

Turning waste into high-value products

A vehicle can only be truly clean if nothing goes to waste in the process. Therefore, we are committed to and working hard every day on closing the loop on automotive and fuel cell catalysts, turning waste into value at every turn.
