Elkem Silicones recently announced plans to build a new research and development (R&D) center at its Saint-Fons site, intended to support its global growth strategy by developing high value-added silicone specialties. The new site is anticipated to be operational at the end of 2020.

With this project, Elkem Silicones reportedly doubles the space dedicated to research on its Saint-Fons site. Several workspaces of the site of Saint-Fons South will be grouped, allowing the R&D teams to work together while maintaining its level of EHS requirements.
