Our Facility

PCI operates in a modern 38,000 square foot facility in North Haven, Connecticut, USA. The site contains catalyst formulation and catalyst coating, machining and reactor assembly areas as well as multiple test rigs supported by an experienced team of technicians. PCI uses its own broad range of proprietary catalyst formulations and coating technologies with appropriate catalyst supports, supported by a wide range of advanced catalyst analytic equipment and techniques. Advanced computing support is provided with the use of a variety of supported and proprietary design and analysis software.
