Desired Outcome:

A globally leading specialty chemical company Clariant is currently seeking novel methods for the industrial manufacturing of heterogeneous catalysts.

Typical materials which we manufacture are zeolites, (mixed) metal oxides, and supported (precious) metals and metal oxides (supports typically are based on alumina, steatite, cordierite or calcium aluminate). Specific exemplary materials would be Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 (used for methanol synthesis), FeOx (used as catalyst precursor for ammonia synthesis) or Pd or Ni on alumina carriers (used e.g. for hydrogenation or dehydrogenation).

The resulting catalysts are currently used for applications around synthesis gas (e.g. methanol production, steam reforming, ammonia production, water gas shift), petrochemicals (e.g. olefin production, aromatics, styrene, ethylene oxide), specialties (e.g. emission control, off-gas treatment, gas purification, selective oxidation, hydrogenation, fuel upgrading).

New methods that are relevant along the production of inorganic solids are of interest, for instance for precipitation, mixing, synthesis, aging, filtration, impregnation, coating, drying, calcining & heat treatment, shaping & forming (i.e. tableting, extrusion and pelletizing).

The methods should be transferable to a scale of several hundred tons annually.

Solution Requirements:

• Transferable to scale of several hundred tons annually

processing conditions

• Novel methods beyond established technology

• Innovative improvements on state-the-art technology will be considered

• The technology should be at least at technology readiness level TRL 4 (technology validated in lab), along with demonstrate laboratory or pilot scale data. Ideally, the proposed compound should also be readily available for performance evaluation.

Project Size Range: Strategic project backed by large scale funding €
