Joint development and tolling
The R&D group is composed of a chemical process catalyst group and a environmental catalyst group, and is developing catalysts suitable for the requirements of customers by establishing various catalyst portfolios as follows.
Having the top-level catalyst technology in the world as a global leading chemical process catalyst maker, the Heesung Catalyst is conducting a custom catalyst joint-development project with the development know-how of catalyst experts to supply a catalyst solution suitable for the customer processes and needs for creation of high added values, and is providing an economical OEM mass-production service(tolling) for the customer-developed catalysts.
Joint Collaboration Project Category
New process development + New catalyst development/supply
Existing process improvement catalyst development/supply
The Heesung Catalyst and customer collaboration makes it a basic rule to protect the intellectual property(IP) of both sides based on thorough observance of secrets.
The Heesung Catalyst is conducting all processes from development to mass production and supply of catalysts optimized for the chemical processes through realization of specialized chemical formulations based on the Material Science and Surface Chemistry.
The Heesung Catalyst shortens the development period from joint development to commercial production of catalysts based on 30 years of various catalyst development, scale-up and OEM mass-production tolling experiences.
The Heesung Catalyst provides an economical scale-up & OEM production tolling service based on its domestically top-level R&D infrastructure, catalyst mass-production facility, and various catalyst development and scale-up know-how.
The dehydrogenation catalyst is mainly used to produce olefin from paraffinic hydrocarbon of C3~C12 among the petrochemical processes.
The catalyst is a Pt-M/Support type, and the Pt content is variously produced depending on the reaction process conditions.
The hydrogenation catalyst is used in various processes from the petrochemical industry to the precision chemistry. However, selective hydrogenation reactions for particular functional groups are not easy, so many studies on catalyst characteristics were realized, and as a result, catalysts using transition metals with suitable hydrogen adsorption intensity and supports for high dispersion were developed. The R&D center of Heesung Catalyst is studying the Pd/Alumina or Pd/carbon used as an excellent catalyst in particular compound hydrogenation reactions by controlling the intensity of catalysts.
The catalysts used in the commercial alkylation process at present are liquid acidic catalysts including HF, which can cause fatal human damage and environmental contamination when leaked. The alkylation catalysts developed by the Heesung Catalyst to remove this risk factor are solid catalysts using zeolite, clay, etc., which have no risk of environmental contamination and have an advantage of having the same performance. The applicable reactions are reactions of producing Linear AlkylBenzene or Branched Alkylbenzene using olefin and benzene, for which mordenite, zeolite Y or active clay is used.
To minimize the air pollution from sulfur that can be generated during combustion of diesel oil, Korea limits content of sulfur to 5ppm or less in sold diesel oil. The hydrodesulfurization catalyst is used to achieve this purpose, and plays a role of converting the sulfur compound in diesel to a H2S gas state and removing it when used under a high-temperature and high-pressure condition. The actually commercially used catalyst by the Heesung Catalyst is CoMoX/Support of molybdenum base as a representative one, which is researched and produced by changing prompters and substrates according to the detailed conditions and purposes.
Gas refining catalyst
As high industrialization is conducted, the weight of using high-purity gas is gradually increasing. Especially, the hydrogen produced via a steam reforming reaction contains carbon monoxide(CO), so only the refined hydrogen can be used in the fuel cell and semiconductor industry. The Heesung Catalyst is studying a Pd/Alumina catalyst excellent for gas refining applicable to the De-oxo process as well as the CO Oxidation process.
