QSI's lead application and commercialization focus is ammonia synthesis, a highly critical and energy-intensive process. The nearly $100 billion of ammonia produced annually consumes 1-2% of the world’s energy supply. More than 80% of this output is used as agricultural fertilizer for global food production (supplying 50% of all human protein consumed).

A multi-billion dollar global industry, catalysts are essential to the world’s industrial production. As much as 90% of all chemical processes utilize catalysts (oil refining, pollution abatement, and production of fuels and chemicals) and 60% of all consumer and industrial products (fertilizers, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and batteries) are made using catalysts.Leveraging a patented process to manufacture advanced proprietary materials with superior properties and cost effective scalability, QSI's turbo-charged FeNIX™ coated catalysts have the potential to increase ammonia production output per plant by up to 20%. With higher activity rates and faster light off at lower temperatures and pressures, the result is an increase in overall conversion efficiency, production output, and plant revenues.
For the thousands of highly inefficient chemical plants in operation today, producing nearly one trillion dollars worth of basic chemicals annually, QSI has developed a seamlessly integrated catalyst technology which has the potential to significantly improve process efficiency and production output, resulting in greater revenue and profits - with no plant modifications or cap-ex requirements. QSI’s patented process and unique catalyst technology offer a value proposition that could be worth billions to chemical plant owners and operators, globally. How do we do it? QSI leverages 12 years of operational experience to develop and manufacture high-performance nanocatalyst technologies designed to increase the rate of chemical reactions in large industrial chemical processes.
