Wison Engineering has always been fully committed with regard to the R&D and innovation of petrochemical and coal-to-chemical technologies. Thus, over the years, it has built up a robust experimental platform for, among other things, catalyst development and testing, and reaction research, In addition, the company also established bench-scale experiment units, two pilot-test units and a suite of assay-analysis instruments, all of which will be further fortified in line with R&D projects progressing. The approximately 33-acre pilot base that Wison Engineering owns in Nanjing Chemical Industry Park focuses on industrial experiments on various things, ranging from methanol to olefin, SNG technology jointly developed with Foster Wheeler and Clariant together; the bottom quench pulverized coal gasification technology in cooperation with Shell has completed demonstration research and enter into commercial operation successfully.

In 2013, Wison Engineering and Tianjin University co-established the “Tianjin University – Wison Research & Development Center for Energy and Chemical Technologies” for the R&D of energy chemical technologies. Together with Guizhou Xinxin Chemical Engineering Co., Ltd., Wison and Tianjin University have fully taken advantage of enterprise-university-research cooperation in the industrialization of coal to ethylene glycol technology. Over the past three years, Wison Engineering has received over ten technical award achievements above the ministerial level. At the same time, there are 20 patents and 5 software copyrights newly granted while near 20 new patent applications have been made.
