hte – the high throughput experimentation company – has been selected by Zeopore Technologies for testing different mesoporised zeolite catalysts under various process conditions. Zeopore has developed a broad platform of zeolite modification processes that enhance the activity, selectivity, and lifetime of zeolite catalytic materials. The test has shown that the samples allow greater improvements in cold flow properties and substantially higher diesel yields than their parent microporous materials.
Zeopore chose hte for the impregnation and testing of different mesoporised zeolite materials in the isomerisation reaction of diesel in a parallel 16-fold high throughput system under several industrially relevant operating conditions. hte’s most advanced high throughput hydroprocessing technology allows maximum operational flexibility and data precision embedded in a fully digitalised workflow. Using high throughput technology enabled hte and Zeopore to compare different catalysts in parallel, demonstrating that the mesoporous materials favour hydro-isomerisation over hydrocracking reactions.??
Kurt Du Mong, CEO of Zeopore Technologies, explains: “Zeopore has developed a unique mesoporisation toolbox to cost-effectively generate more performant zeolites with custom-made properties. With the excellent support of hte, we are proud to have demonstrated the catalytic and economic value proposition in the highly relevant dewaxing application under industrial conditions. Currently, we are negotiating with selected catalyst manufacturers to bring this innovative dewaxing technology to market. We look forward to commercialising our mesoporisation technology further across a range of applications.
"??Wolfram Stichert, CEO of hte, commented: “We are delighted that Zeopore selected hte to support its research on mesoporised zeolites, which promise superior performance in catalytic diesel dewaxing. We look forward to supporting Zeopore in future investigations into the application of mesoporized zeolites in other catalytic industrial processes.”
