Open Innovation

The Element of Open Innovation

At Dixie Chemical Company, we’re in the business of change. That’s why we are committed to the promise of open innovation. Our chemistry enhances how people experience their daily environment. We also understand that, while we can’t solve all the world’s problems, we can be part of the solution—a  catalyst for team-based solutions.

Dixie is committed to market growth through products that support clean technology and sustainable chemistry. Several products are currently in commercialization for sustainable end-uses. Those products include building materials, infrastructure, transportation and coatings.
