As well as our emission control catalysts which reduce harmful emissions from combustion engine vehicles, our industrial and pharmaceutical catalysts enable our customer’s processes to run more efficiently, with less energy, supporting the decarbonisation of industry. Our catalyst technologies are also independent of the input (or feedstock) used so our customers can adapt to use more sustainable feedstocks
We have expertise across many different types of catalysis so we can choose the right catalyst for the job from inorganic platinum catalysts to enzyme biocatalysts. To develop a cost-effective process and get more out of the precious metal we use, we look at the distribution of metal across the catalyst surface, the ways the particle are formulated and supported and we investigate methods of improving the durability and performance. We also make sure that any new catalyst we develop can be manufactured at industrial scales and will fit seamlessly into our customers’ existing production processes.
