Catalysis is the acceleration of a chemical reaction by a catalyst. Econic Technologies is commercialising a unique range of catalysts for the alternating co-polymerisation of CO2 with epoxides. Without the catalyst the carbon dioxide would simply not react with other raw materials.
Properties of Econic’s catalysts
- High CO2 incorporation in polymer chains
- Low by-product formation
- Low pressure requirements
- Ease of synthesis
- Potential for retro-fit into existing industry reactors
- Produce novel CO2-based polycarbonate polyols
These advantages mean that Econic Technologies is well-placed to succeed in a growing market sequestering captured carbon dioxide and transforming it into commercially viable end products.
