Working with Catalysis

Creating and adding value is at the core of what we do. And we do this in a number of ways.

Fast track to market

We combine unparalleled professional research with an entrepreneur’s drive to fast track a catalyst or catalytic process to the market. Our high-throughput testing expertise and knowledge traditional research means we can increase the speed of development by a factor up to 100x

Network of experts

We complement our own team of experienced experts and leaders with a world-class network of industry veterans heralding from the likes of Johnson Matthey, Albermarle, DuPont, BP. Shell, Unilever, DSM, NatureWorks and technical universities the world over.

 

Clear-cut IP

Our open and collaborative approach is designed to generate Intellectual Property (IP) for our clients. The IP created during the scope of a service collaboration belongs to the companies we are working with. See our customer’s patents with Avantium inventors.

Independence and integrity

Avantium is an independent operator with no links to any other technology provider in the industry. We guarantee the highest confidentiality and security when it comes to our clients’ data and information.

Flexible and open-minded

Our flexible and open-minded approach to doing business is the reason we can maximize opportunities and define new routes of innovation. Our experts understand that the surest path towards finding a solution is through a flexible mindset, intensive interaction, and critical and creative thinking.

Our Customers

siluriaOur goal was to rapidly test a large amount of catalysts and process conditions while maintaining high quality data standards. We were able to run over 50 experimental tests in parallel each week due to Avantium’s fast turnaround time. In fact, turnaround time was reduced to minutes. Both their reactor-to-reactor and block-to-block accuracy and reproducibility are great. Avantium’s Flowrence® technology is really helping us achieve our goals.
