Grace, Braskem to develop catalyst for green chemicals

COLUMBIA, US: W R Grace & Co has signed a multi-year agreement with Braskem to develop process technologies and catalyst solutions to produce green chemicals. The agreement is intended to advance the commercialization of a process to convert renewably sourced feedstocks into value-added products. The use of renewable feedstocks is a growing trend in the global chemical industry.

The technology under development in the Grace-Braskem collaboration is based on carbon sources from renewable agricultural processes that contribute to lower carbon emissions than traditional feedstocks. “This collaboration demonstrates our commitment to become a leading supplier of catalysts to the renewable chemicals industry,” said George Young, Vice President, New Business Development, Grace.
