EFT has the resources and experienced personnel to make small batches of catalyst for testing. We can start with a catalyst that needs improvement or start with a clean slate. We can utilize commercially available support materials or custom supports generated internally from starting materials. We have worked with numerous shapes and sizes including powders, extrudates, tablets, pellets and spheres. Active metals can be added utilizing a variety of techniques with intermediate and finished catalysts calcined to customer defined operating conditions. Selected physical properties can be determined and quantified with our analytical tools. Once a catalyst that meets the client’s target performance needs has been identified, its operating characteristics (kinetics, deactivation rate, response to contaminants, etc.) can be determined in the appropriate laboratory scale reactor system. EFT can provide a complete scale-up manufacturing plan with quality control parameters starting from initial manufacturing technology transfer to full scale commercial production.
