Many specialty chemicals are produced using batch processing. Continous processing using catalysts, services, and systems from Applied Catalyss enables higher productivity with lower production costs. Applied Catalysts offers assistance in converting your batch chemistry to a continuous fixed bed process at all sages of development.
About Our Process
Current batch reactor processes can be converted to continuous processes by catalyst selection and engineering to commercial systems.
Pain Points We Solve
It is not common to have an organization that spans the catalyst development process from lab scale to commercial production.
Implementing catalyst development technology rapidly enables rapid commercialization and maximizes the NPV created by implementing the developed catalyst.

With a proven record of Custom Catalyst manufacturing services and a foundation of knowledgeable chemists and researchers, Applied Catalysts’ monolithic catalyst supports even the most challenging design and processing needs from manufacturing to development, ensuring high performance.
Using an activated carbon monolith catalyst for CO2 capture has a number of advantages. First, activated carbon in the monolith can absorb and desorb CO2. Second, activated carbon is a high-capacity support for other base adsorbants, such as alkali or alkaline earth metal carbonates or amine-functionalized polymers.
ACMC catalysts can be used for continuous chemical processes, including hydrogenation of organic liquids and gases, reductive alkylation, amination, Fischer-Tropsch hydrocarbons, and oxygenates and acids, hydrochlorination, hydrodenitrogenation, and hydrodesulfurization. Our solutions are aimed at supporting activated carbon monoliths used in the chemical process.
The hydrogenation process involves the addition of hydrogen to organic substrates. The functional groups being converted in the organic substrates can be olefinic to aliphatic groups, aromatic compounds to aliphatic compounds, nitro groups to amines, nitrile groups to amines, acids to aldehydes, and aldehydes and ketones to alcohols and ethers. Hydrogenation can also be used to remove sulfur, nitrogen, and chlorine content in molecules.
The manufacture of pharmaceuticals often contains one or more catalytic hydrogenation steps. Monolith catalysts convert the functional group of a molecule selectively into a new one to produce the starting material for the next synthetic step. Applied Catalysts can provide ACMC monolith-based catalysts for continuous flow process chemistry, enhancing the sustainability and low cost of manufacturing pharmaceutical products.
