Chemistry without catalysis, would be a sword without a handle, a light without brilliance, a bell without sound.”

Catalytic processes are present in almost every chemical manufacturing process, therefore the selection of the best catalytic system perfectly adapted to the specific characteristics of each manufacturing unit, will have a decisive impact on the profitability of the business.

In many cases, catalysts are also the main cost drivers in the manufacturing process. Their optimal selection is critical to achieve highest efficiency and the longest catalytic lifetime cycles. This process is always done complying with all the environmental and regulatory requirements.
