The Chemours Company, the global chemistry company, has broken ground on its new state-of-the-art research and innovation facility, which is located on the University of Delawares Science, Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus. The new facility is intended to be a place for discovery and thus, is aptly named The Chemours Discovery Hub.
The facility, in partnership with the University of Delaware, will conduct cutting edge research focused on new process, product, and application development to better meet customer and market needs. Construction on the new 312,000-square-foot facility is expected to be completed by early 2020.
The University of Delaware leadership, the Governor, federal elected officials, and other local and state officials joined Chemours for the groundbreaking event at the STAR Campus.
“This is much more than a brick-and-mortar story; it’s about the discoveries to come that just might change or at least shape the future,” said Chemours President and CEO Mark Vergnano. “The Chemours Discovery Hub will serve as a gathering placea center for activity where vision, ambition, intelligence, and creative energy will flourishnot just for years, but for decades to come.”
