Heat Integrated Reactive Distillation Process for Synthesis of Bio-Based Chemicals and Conversion of CO2 to Alkyl Carbonate
The E3Tec Team has developed heat integrated reactive distillation (HIRD) process equipped with side reactors. The process is applied to esterification of selected esters of organic acids to replace petroleum-based plasticizers and conversion of captured CO2 to value-added chemical products.
Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis using Spontaneously Activatable Catalysts
A catalytic process for production of synthetic liquid fuels and/or high value-added chemicals from coal, natural/shale gas, or biomass via syngas (H2 + CO) using unique iron-based catalysts with no necessity for an extra pre-activation treatment
A complete portfolio of Berkeley LabÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s available technologies that incorporate graphene. Graphene is a Ã¢â‚¬Å“super materialÃ¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 200 time stronger than steel, an efficient conductor of heat and electricity, and nearly transparent Ã¢â‚¬â€œand serves as the foundation for breakthrough technologies in fields ranging from Transmission Electron Microscopy to Hydrogen Storage.
Pristine Low-Cost Large-Area Graphene Sheets
Graphene is an advanced material with excellent properties related to conductivity, toughness, flexibility and transparency; but several factors hinder grapheneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s market entry including material cost, purity and process scalability. Large-Area Graphene films grown from electrically activated coal bypasses market entry issues and enhances national security by local resource usage
xPAO Functional Polyolefins
Precision Polyolefins (PPL) utilizes proprietary catalyst technology to produce xPAOs Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a revolutionary new class of reactive polymer that will be used by PPL and its customers to create a new landscape of performance enhancing additives for advanced materials, including superior coatings, lubricants, and phase change materials for thermal regulation.
Novel recycling process for new polymeric material
A novel recycling technology able to produce a new plastic material with excellent mechanical properties matching pure polypropylene. This material is made from the fraction of polymers usually discarded in recycling plants encapsulated into a blend of recycled polyethylene and polypropylene.
Bisphenol A (BPA) Free Epoxies Useful in Making Safer Food and Beverage Can Coatings
This technology is looking to eliminate toxic can coatings from the food and beverage products with an innovative and proprietary BPA-free epoxy without compromising the quality and taste. This new formulation can be easily manufactured in the existing infrastructure and has equivalent or better characteristics than conventional epoxy.
