The role of international co operations in developing and transferring the technology of commercial catalysts production is studied in this article. The methodology used in benchmarking, preparing and gathering information along with their analysis performed by Kieza technology acquisition model. To specify the benchmarking, the criteria such as development rate, oil resources status, and geopolitics are used. Brazil, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait were the benchmarked countries which have acquired the technologies related to commercial catalyst production through international co operations in recent decades. Based on this study, the common investment is the best method to transfer catalysts technology. The concentration on growing catalysts with export expansion approach is suggested as well.
