FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of the University of Notre Dame’s novel method of catalyst preparation, known as pressure dilution. By using this technology, the resulting catalyst pellets are not only more stable but also boast an extended usable capacity over eight times longer than before. Additionally, pressure dilution has yielded catalyst pellets with three times higher dispersion than the original undiluted pellets, resulting in significantly higher activity and stability during testing of the reaction.
This technology improves functionality and durability of metal-supported catalysts used in the petroleum and petrochemical industries. The global petrochemicals market size was valued at USD 584.50 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 1002.45 billion by 2030.
The University of Notre Dame’s novel method of catalyst preparation is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the University of Notre Dame team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
