The chemical industry is one of Korea’s major industries, and chemistry is an important asset that has improved the quality of life and laid the foundation for modern civilizations.
Since its establishment in 1976, the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology (KRICT) has played a leading role in the advancement of the nation’s chemical industry, namely, developing technology in chemistry and related fields, transferring chemical technology to industries, fostering experts and leaders, and providing a wide range of infrastructure supporting services.
Based on advanced chemical infrastructure, the institute has developed novel technology for eco-friendly chemical processes, green chemicals, medicine, and biochemistry. It is actively addressing national issues through the development of convergent technology, and ensuring sustainable development of the chemical industry by fostering small giants and promoting technology commercialization.
KRICT promises to reach for new heights in chemistry and chemical engineering, and continue our role in facilitating increased use of the knowledge generated from research.
