At Chemours, we believe in the power of partnerships to find the best solutions to the biggest challenges and the opportunities they offer to accelerate progress. By working together, and through the unique capabilities of our chemistry, we help enable important applications that deliver on societal goals, such as transitioning to clean energy, driving innovation in low global warming potential thermal management solutions, advancing electronics and electrifying transportation, progressing a greener and more inclusive future, and helping improve lives everywhere.”
