The applications for Oleochemicals are ever-increasing, yielding high prices for soybeans and other sources of oleochemicals. Applied Catalyst provides catalysts, systems, and services for continuous flow process chemistry using oleochemical feedstocks, enhancing the sustainability and low cost of manufactured products.


Benefits for Our Clients

We have developed an excellent monolith-based catalyst for the continuous hydrogenation of a sucrose ester.  We are also ready to explore other hydrogenated oleochemical products and other chemistries, such as epoxidation.

We help improve processes for producing oleochemicals and derivatives to help achieve lower production costs and lower levels of impurities. We do this by transitioning batch processes to continuous processes. Applied Catalysts’ continuous processes eliminate costly separation steps, decreasing


Pain Points We Solve

It is not common for an organization to have catalyst and process development know-how that spans from lab scale to commercial production. Applied Catalysts has developed the needed resources over years of similar projects. Working with Applied Catalysts will deliver the needed results more rapidly. This maximizes the NPV created by implementing the developed technology.
