Catalysis

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.
