Applied Catalysts offers several ACMC (Activated Carbon Monolith Catalysts) products for Chemical Process applications.

Custom & Industry Catalysts with Applied

Identifying the best catalyst for a chemical process is a daunting task. Applied Catalysts has a mission of helping those without a historical database of catalysts and performance data. Whether designing the catalyst to meet the process requirements or selecting from proven and historical catalysts, Applied Catalysts can deliver the catalyst you need. A combination of catalysis experience and investments in internal resources and external relationships have been organized to deliver these results.

Delivering Custom and Industry Catalysts builds on a foundation of catalyst development over the 30-year history of Applied Catalysts, for both monolith-based and particulate catalysts, and PGM and base-metal catalysts. We have developed catalysts for hydrogenation and other reductive processes, and selected proprietary chemistries of customers.



Our Process for Custom Catalysts

Applied Catalysts apply internally-developed, externally-developed and, when needed, newly-developed catalysts for customer processes. Lab-scale reactors are available to run customer chemistry or related chemistry. This assistance includes providing catalysts, process development, and scale-up to commercial production. The goal is to provide the best catalyst and process solutions to our customers. We leverage outside resources as needed, to complement the customer team.


How Custom & Industry Catalysts Can Help You

Having access to a broad range of catalysts enables more rapid project success. It can be quickly determined if catalyst development is needed and action taken. This shortens the path to commercialization, increasing the NPV realized from implementing the new project technology.

It is not common to have an organization that spans the catalyst development process from lab scale to pilot scale to commercial production. Building such a capability delays time to market and may not be cost-effective compared to working with a chemical catalyst company like ours, where the resources have been developed over years of similar projects.

Process Catalysts

Metal Oxide Catalysts (MOC)

MOC products offer advantages as it can be used in both reductive and oxidative environments. Other advantages include high strength, attrition resistance, and tunable surface properties for various applications.

Custom Catalysts

Delivering on a foundation of catalyst development of over 30 years, we offer monolith-based, particulate catalysts, PGM, and base-metal catalysts.

Activated Carbon Monolith Catalysts (ACMC)

At Applied Catalysts, we strive to meet the unique needs of every customer. Whether you have a particular catalyst type in mind or need some additional guidance, we can help find the best solutions through all stages, from development to commercialization.

Granular Activated Carbon Catalysts (GACC)

GACC products have a high surface area and inert support for numerous catalyst applications. We can help you develop, test, and deliver the right catalyst.




Hydrogenation is an essential process in a number of chemical process industries, including Specialty Chemicals, Pharmaceutical intermediates, and Polymers. We offer robust hydrogenation catalysts, systems, and services for a variety of classes of chemistry at the lab, pilot, and production scale.

Increase Project Success with Custom & Industry Catalysts

Having the right catalyst is one of the key pieces to project success and commercialization. Leveraging internally-developed custom and industry catalysts, along with rapid catalyst testing, lowers technical risk and improves NPV capture. Here is what we bring to the table:

  • arrow-circle-lg

    we have developed catalysts for many continuous hydrogenation and reduction chemical applications

  • arrow-circle-lg

    have existing assets in place for tons/day quantities of catalyst manufacturing

  • arrow-circle-lg

    we respond quickly to customer catalyst development needs

We are committed to applying world-class catalyst technology for the chemistry of interest using internal and industry standard catalysts – assuring the best available catalysts for each application, whether we produce the catalysts or sourced from world-class vendors.
