Functional Materials Manufacturing

Responding to World-wide Needs through Advanced Manufacturing

JGC manufactures and sells unique products in the fields of catalysts, fine chemicals and fine ceramics. Our advanced technologies, such as fine-particle control technologies, material property evaluation and improvement technologies, and high production control capabilities, enable us to achieve a high share of the market for specific products. We contribute to the creation of a sustainable society by supplying these products, which are essential for people's comfortable lives.


JGC mainly manufactures FCC (fluid catalytic cracking) catalysts, catalysts for hydrogenation processes, and other catalysts for petroleum refineries, as well as chemical catalysts for petrochemical applications. We have the top share of FCC catalysts in Japan, and we are considered one of the leading producers of this product in the world.
Recently, we have been focusing on sales of environment-related products such as flue gas denitrification catalysts. We are also contributing to global environmental conservation by providing technology licenses in Europe, the United States, South Korea, China and other countries.
