Axens at a Glance

  • Who ARE we?

Axens is an international provider of advanced technologies (licensor), catalysts, adsorbents and services (technical assistance, consulting) to the refining, petrochemical, gas and alternative fuels industries. The main scope of Axens’ business is focused on the conversion of oil, gas, biomass and coal to fuels and major petrochemical intermediates.

  • Our mission

Improving the performance of our clients and helping them to be more successful constitute our only mission. We are a non-aligned pure technology company. We do not sell motor fuels or chemicals and do not operate service stations.

  • Our ambitions

Our ambition is to be the reference technology company for applications in refining, petrochemicals and gas processing. We are also active in industrial water treatment markets.

Actively preparing for the future, we aim to be a leader in alternative fuels: conversion of renewable lipids to diesel and jet fuel, production of high-quality distillates from direct coal-liquefaction and the manufacture of liquid products through the conversion of synthesis gas from various feedstocks such as natural gas, biomass and coal.

  • Our Foundation

Axens, an IFP Energies nouvelles group company, was created in 2001 through the merger of Procatalyse with the Technology Licensing & Service Division of IFP Energies nouvelles. This combination provides a single-source offering of technologies, products and services enabling us to respond more efficiently to customer needs.

  • AXENS INTEGRITY CODE 

The Axens Integrity Code introduced in February 2018, is our code of conduct to doing the right things in business. It is a principles-based approach centred around the three axes of respect, honesty, and protection of assets, reflecting our values that guide our everyday business decisions, clarifying the ethics and compliance requirements for everyone who works for us. It also affirms our commitment to fight against all forms of corruption. Having a common set of shared values, behaviours and clear ethical expectations will ensure we make choices in a consistent way, around the globe, in many different contexts for everyone who works for, and with Axens. Read the complete Axens Integrity Code here
