A leading force in catalysis

THE COMPANY

We develop high surface area catalysts, to save money and resources. Catalysts make chemical reactions happen quickly. Without catalysts our air would be much dirtier, energy would be much more expensive, food packaging would be less durable, and most pharmaceuticals would not exist.

For catalysts to work, they must come in contact with whatever they are catalyzing: engine exhaust, energy sources, chemical mixtures and pharmaceutical ingredients. Since the chemical reactions take place on material surface, if a catalyst has high surface area, a small amount of it can do the job.
We are experts in making high surface area catalysts. By our methods, a small amount of a catalyst can have enormous catalytic surface area. A low loading of our catalysts can catalyze a chemical reaction that typically needs 10-100 times the amount of catalysts normally used, thus significantly reducing the cost.

Today our technology applies to greenhouse gas reduction, electrocatalysis for fuel cells & electrolyzers and heterogeneous catalysis in chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing. In the future we will expand into emerging applications for novel catalytic materials.

Focused product development

We work with leading researchers that have disruptive catalytic technologies. We use our high surface area methods to convert their technologies into scalable catalytic products. And we find the best way to commercialize technologies by partnering with manufacturers, distributors and end-users to make catalytic technologies cost-effective and profitable.

Our current project goals include

  • Minimizing greenhouse gases
  • Developing carbon-neutral and carbon-negative fuels
  • Using environmental carbon as a chemical feedstock
  • Minimizing the use of scarce natural resources
  • Recycling catalytic materials
  • Eliminating catalyst contamination of end products
  • Breaking down C-H chains in plastic recycling

Catalysis expertise

Our global catalyst team comes from industry and academia. They understand the benefits and challenges of catalysts across a broad spectrum of applications.

Material & manufacturing expertise

We spent years perfecting nanofiber manufacturing to maximize catalytic surface area. Then we developed ceramic lattices—a mixture of fiber diameters—to hold nanofibers in place for optimal catalytic performance. We have also processed nanofibers for unique applications.

Catalysis market

According to a UK study published by the Knowledge Transfer Network in 2019, catalysts are involved in 80-90% of all manufactured products. In particular, catalysis will play a key part in addressing challenges around:

Clean growth

Decarbonization & industrial biotechnology

Healthy ageing

Medicines manufacturing

Future of mobility

Batteries & fuel cells

Recycling

Plastics, electronics, & metals

Market research firm Frost & Sullivan recognized us with its New Product Innovation Award for The Catalytic Filtration Industry in North America: “The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has enforced strict protocols to curb smog-causing hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxide, and other air pollutants. When fully implemented, these protocols can cut gasoline consumption by 190 million gallons each year. Amid higher use of off-road engines, there is an immense potential for the adoption of catalytic converters and filters.”

Embedment on fibers is better than coating catalysts on solid substrates

  • More surface area (less catalyst needed)
  • Low risk of migration and agglomeration (catalytic surface area doesn’t contract)
  • Low risk of end product contamination (embedded catalysts are part of the substrate)
  • Lower costs (less catalyst needed or cost-effective alternatives)
