Catalyst and Process Development
In order to commercialize a promising catalyst material, the process conditions for its application need to be optimized. We examine a wide range of parameters like temperature, pressure, gas-flow rate, different catalyst aging stages, and different feed-stocks. And, we evaluate them using comprehensive kinetic studies and modeling. Furthermore, at hte we can evaluate startup and shutdown procedures, activation and deactivation behavior, and regeneration processes.
Taking knowledge obtained in the lab and scaling up allows our customers to effectively bridge the gap between high throughput catalyst screening and pilot plant scale. We formulate the experimental strategy, the catalytic materials are provided either by our customers or synthesized in our own synthesis laboratories. We deliver testing data and their evaluation, the catalyst and process IP stays with our customers.
