Catalysis and its importance in chemical industry

Reactant needs to overcome specific energy, namely activation energy in respect to form products. The activation energy is the variance within the energy of transition state and the reactant species. Certain reactant molecules have adequate kinetic energy to overcome the energy restriction whereas others don’t. Thus, not all the reactions happen at the same rate in general states. Read more

 

 

Braskem and Danish-based Haldor Topsoe, a world leader in catalysts and surface science, have signed a technological cooperation agreement to develop a pioneering route to produce monoethylene glycol (MEG) from sugar. The agreement calls for the construction of a demonstration plant in Denmark, with operation slated to begin in 2019. Read more

 

 

Perstorp and 3D4Makers BV are developing a new generation of high quality, high-performance filament. As the world’s first fifth-generation 3D filament, Facilan enables applications previously unobtainable with other 3D printing materials. Developed jointly by Perstorp and 3D4makers, Facilan delivers fit-for-purpose filaments for 3D additive manufacturing. Read more

 

 

Lignin, a substance considered as a waste product in biomass and ethanol production, will now reach its proper value as bio-oil in new products. Lignin is a natural substance in biomass, but it is unwanted in processes like production of paper or ethanol. In those processes, lignin is considered as waste and is used as fuel in heat and power plants. Read more
