Arkema Finds Glycerol-to-Acrylic Acid Catalysts; Demo-Scale Plant Possible

11:37 AM MDT | April 10, 2009 | REBECCA COONS

Arkema says a joint research pact with high-throughput catalyst process development firm HTE (Heidelberg, Germany) was successful in developing catalysts to produce acrolein and acrylic acid from the conversion of glycerol. Arkema tells CW it may build a demonstration-scale plant within 2-4 years. A few hundred catalysts were screened for suitability using HTE’s parallel testing technologies, and several families of catalysts were singled out, Arkema says. “By using this high-throughput approach, we have been able to produce results in a matter of...
