UK: Catalysts Velocys Collaborates with PQ for Producing Catalysts
PQ Corporation aims to supply commercial quantities of Velocys’ proprietary catalyst for multiple bio refineries. The catalysts have also been used to produce renewable transportation fuel and other products at the world’s first commercial smaller scale gas-to-liquids plant, Envia.
UK – Velocys, the renewable fuels company, has recently announced that it has partnered with PQ Corporation (PQ) for the supply of commercial quantities of Velocys’ proprietary catalyst. This catalyst will be used in multiple bio refineries incorporating its technology. PQ is a leading global provider of specialty catalysts, services, materials and chemicals for the refinery, emissions control and petrochemical industries.
Catalyst produced by PQ has already been used to successfully produce renewable transportation fuel and other products at Envia, the world’s first commercial smaller scale gas-to-liquids plant, which incorporates Velocys technology. In addition, PQ will manufacture the catalyst to be used by Velocys’ licensees as well as by the bio refinery projects that the company is developing with its industry partners.
This includes its US biorefinery that will convert waste woody biomass into 20 million gallons per year of low-carbon transportation fuels and its plant in the UK that will convert waste into sustainable jet fuel.
