The Advanced Sciences and Technologies Division was established in April 2004
to commercialize cutting-edge technologies in the chemicals industry and to
foster MC's involvement in growth fields. The Fine Chemicals Unit deals in pharmaceuticals,
agrichemicals and fine chemicals used in the electronics industry, as well as
intermediates used in each sector. The Life Science Products Unit focuses on
safe and reliable sweeteners, natural flavorings and functional food ingredients
geared towards health-conscious consumers. The Life Sciences Business Unit aims
to create new business models related to biotechnology and life sciences, working
across a wide range of business sectors, from medical diagnostics and pharmaceuticals
to food products and agricultural and fishery industries. In addition, the Advanced
Technologies Commercialization Unit is promoting the commercialization of new
technologies, materials and services, with a strong focus on environmental fields,
nano-materials, and retail related businesses.
