Dedicated to innovation in fuel additive technology

At Innospec we make it our business to develop the innovative and ground-breaking new technologies that help solve everyday problems. Our products help improve engine performance, fuel economy and emission reduction while making engines safer, more efficient and easier to maintain.

To achieve this, we invest heavily in research and development. Our scientists have invented and developed many of the proprietary technologies that have become the benchmark for fuel performance in the industry. With our global network of world-class laboratories, we have the resources to optimise fuel additives to meet changing customer requirements and specifications. We have a full technical team based at UTAC, Millbrook in the UK. It is acknowledged as a global centre of excellence for independent testing and validation. We access the test laboratories, environmental chambers, noise measurement surfaces and over 2,200 acres of proving grounds with specialist tracks and surfaces to replicate almost all driving conditions required for real-time and accelerated life cycle tests.

“Innovation is key to our business. Developing novel technologies to solve new problems is our life-blood. Whatever issues our customers have, we will work with them to find a solution. Our commitment to R&T is critical. It’s about developing new molecules or using existing technology in one sector and applying it to another sector.”
