QSI has patented a process to manufacture high-performance nanocatalysts. These nanocatalysts increase the rate of chemical reactions and, therefore, production efficiency in multi-billion dollar industrial chemical plants.
As much as 90% of all chemical processes utilize catalysts (oil refining, pollution abatement, and production of fuels and chemicals) and nearly 60% of all consumer and industrial products (fertilizers, plastics, pharmaceuticals and batteries) are made using catalysts.
QSI’s lead chemical focus is ammonia synthesis, which is critical to the global food supply. More than 80% of ammonia output is used as agricultural fertilizer for food production (supplying 50% of all human protein consumed). The approximately $100 billion USD of ammonia produced annually consumes 1-2% of the world’s energy supply, and nearly 5% of natural gas.
There are hundreds of ammonia plants in operation globally that could run more efficiently, and benefit from QSI’s catalyst accelerator technology.
