Scalable Manufacturing of High-Entropy Alloy Catalysts for Ammonia Oxidation
Project Innovation + Advantages:
HighT-Tech aims to develop advanced high-entropy alloy (HEA) catalysts for ammonia oxidation with enhanced catalytic activity, selectivity, and stability. HighT-Tech’s technical approach includes scalable high-temperature thermal shock manufacturing of uniformly mixed multi-metallic nanoparticle HEA catalysts, reduced precious metal contents by >50%, reduced operating temperature, enhanced selectivity to desired reaction products, and extended catalyst lifetime. The team will scale up HEA catalyst manufacturing, perform studies mimicking industrial operation conditions to compare catalytic performance, and build prototype reactors to demonstrate the proposed technology’s techno-economic advantages.
The proposed project will enable a new catalyst technology with great commercial potential for the chemical industries.
