In clean mobility materials, Umicore is unique. Umicore is the only materials technology company that provides a complete offering to support the roadmap towards ever-cleaner vehicles. 

We provide automotive catalysts to clean the exhaust gases from internal combustion engines for light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles and all fuel types. 

Umicore also provides cathode materials for electric vehicles. We produce catalysts for fuel cell vehicles. And last but not least, hybrid vehicles require optimizing combined solutions of automotive catalysts and cathode materials. Umicore is also the only player capable of recycling all these materials and components of the drivetrain when they reach the end of life in a sustainable closed loop.

We have established strong positions in all these areas over the years and invested massively for the future. 

We take into account the following considerations in the development of advanced catalytic aftertreatment systems:

  • Emission feasibility
  • Fuel Consumption
  • Performance
  • Reliability and robustness
  • Layout and installation impacts
  • Variable costs
  • Total cost of ownership 
  • Investments
  • Synergies with other solutions within the same or different engine families
