Progress in gas-to-products research

By Jeremy Ondrey |

hte — the high throughput experimentation company (Heidelberg, Germany; www.hte-company.com) and BP Chemicals Ltd. (Sunbury on Thames,  U.K.; www.bp.com) celebrate the fourth consecutive year of a successful working relationship.   Over the past four years, hte has helped BP Chemicals to develop an entirely new gas-to-products process. By using hte’s proprietary high throughput technology, BP has been able to take its ideas from the initial conception phase right through to process development in a considerably short space of time.    The relationship began in 2004, with hte providing BP Chemicals with Stage I catalyst-screening technology for gas-to-products testing. This has allowed screening of a diverse range of materials classes under varying conditions in the quest to discover the most promising leads, whilst greatly accelerating the process.   The subsequent steps, using hte’s Stage II testing technology, then allowed for the refinement of catalyst compositions and recipes thus optimizing catalyst conditions. Several hundred catalysts were tested using hte custom-made parallel reactor technology. BP Chemicals were able to take full advantage of hte’s expert catalyst and technology…
