Isobutanol dehydration under relevant conditions indicates sufficient catalyst stability at a commercial scale. hte’s high throughput systems allow for a very fast mapping of different catalysts or reaction parameters. Supported by hte’s proprietary software solutions, experiments can be executed and analyzed in a fully automated and flexible way. Consequently, the evaluation of large amount of data sets is shortened immensely which allows the customers to access knowledge very fast.
Dr. Chris Ryan, Chief Operating Officer at Gevo says, "The study at hte provided insights in the isobutanol dehydration reaction beyond Gevo’s expectations, further strengthening Gevo’s technical knowledge and capabilities as they relate to the production of renewable fuels. Thus, strengthening the successful execution of commercial-scale projects."
Wolfram Stichert, CEO at hte, comments, "high throughput experimentation is an efficient tool to accelerate the development of new catalytic processes such as lowcarbon biofuel or chemicals within a short time. Therefore, hte is proud of supporting Gevo, a pioneer in sustainable fuels."
At hte – the high throughput experimentation company, we make R&D in the area of catalysis faster and more productive. We enable cost-effective innovations and reduced time to market for new products, thereby allowing our customers in the energy & refining, chemical & petrochemical, and environmental industries to keep ahead of the competition.
