Over 90 % of all chemical processes use catalysts, for example to transform oil into usable products such as petrol and Lego. Delft IMP has a patented technology to produce highly efficient catalysts, allowing up to 60 % more usable product to be produced from the same amount of oil. We licence our technology to catalysts producers, in return for 15 % of the increased profit. The catalysts producers implement our technology to produce more efficient catalysts, giving them 40 % more turnover, while allowing their customers, the chemical industry, to have more efficient processes.
Our production technique to produce highly efficient catalysts further enables the transition from an oilbased economy to a biobased economy, and will result in 2.5 to 5 billion Euro in energy savings when implemented for all catalysts worldwide.
This start-up is one of the Top-10 teams in our Grande Finale and won access to Climate-KIC Accelerator. Curious about the pitch during the ClimateLaunchpad European Final 2015? You can watch it here.
