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, 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 and output.
