Catalytic Chemical Reactors
PCI is developing novel approaches to chemicals manufacture using new catalytic systems, seeking improved selectivity and yield as well as other advantages, offering what could be significant economic benefits to chemical plants, pharmaceutical manufacturing and petroleum refineries. Such reactors could also generate capital cost savings over traditional processes.
PCI's approach is distinguished by the novelty of its reactors, both in catalyst structure and in mode of operation. Reactor design opportunities are highly customized in nature, and include the following:
- A novel reactor controlling mass transfer to the catalyst surface, and in development for alkylation (current DOE project) and oxidative processes.
- Short contact time Microlith reactors for specialized chemicals manufacture.
