Collaborative approach, groundbreaking results
Our Catalysis Services is built around a highly collaborative model that enables our partners to create their own proprietary (IP) catalysts and catalytic processes using Avantium’s own (IP) equipment and methods. This open collaborative approach has produced effective and groundbreaking results. Our way of developing new catalytic processes is to merge the knowledge, process and business insights, creative ideas and methodologies of our partners with our own high-throughput screening capabilities and expertise on catalyst synthesis, testing and modeling. Our approach doesn’t just generate better catalysts and processes – it also generates them faster.
A broad scope of expertise
Catalysis Services offers a broad scope of expertise – from helping our clients choose the best commercial catalyst and developing their own process to optimizing an existing idea or testing the feasibility of a new concept.
Extensive experience, tailor-made methods
Every time we develop new catalysts or catalytic processes we tailor our methods and instrumentation to meet our client’s specific chemistry. Backed by our extensive experience with many types of reactions, we are equally capable of tackling new chemical applications. Our Services program focuses first on validation and feasibility, through referencing or via proof-of-principle tests. With this information we can define the screening program and analyze the vast amount of resulting data to determine the next set of experiments. If the end goal is catalytic process optimization, then we will use the data to model catalyst and process parameters using surface response models and pinpoint the best performance conditions.
Highly effective, uniquely efficient
Our integrated approach to developing new catalytic processes enables us to more effectively and efficiently pinpoint the right process for our clients. We speed up the process by combining the catalyst-screening phase with process evaluation. In other words, we evaluate the effects of product separation, (by)product formation and process economics during the research phase rather than after the fact, and in this way more quickly introduce new catalytic processes into pilot phase. >read more about our YXY program.
