The main Research & Development Center is in Villadossola, Montedison’s historical site, which saw the development of many precursors of today’s key products and of complex reaction technologies, still highly competitive to date. Villadossola also houses the Technology Center, which provides technical service for the development of new products and their applications.
A research unit also operates Milan-based laboratories, mainly in the area of exploratory synthesis. It also provides assistance in the Ravenna manufacturing activities, whose original methods, developed by ANIC (Azienda Nazionale Idrogenazione Combustibili), differ from those developed by Montedison, followed in Villadossola.
The R&D Centre in Laval, Canada, also has a 10-member team dedicated to the development and improvement of VINAVIL Americas’ products and technologies.
