Located in the Psevdas area, our newly-formed chemical laboratory is fully equipped with all the necessary equipment to assist our commercial business and highly advance the research, development and innovation (R&D&I) activities of the company. Our top-notch equipment includes:
2 laboratory mills, 1 ball/chain mill with capacity of 20kg and 1 large ball mill with capacity of 1tn
Spent automotive catalysts and filters are collected and milled to obtain the appropriate particle size for the PGM recovery process.
6 reactors of 1lt, 2lt, 3lt, 5lt, 100lt and 150lt
a. Critical Raw Materials (PGMs, Co, V, W and rare earths) recovery from spent catalysts
b. Synthesis of Polymetallic Nano-Catalytic Powders
For grinding determination and sieve sequence with 125μm, 1mm and 2mm opening size sieves.
The lightoff and the activity of fresh and aged catalysts is determined in laboratory scale
With 3lt and 70lt capacity.
Furnaces are used in synthesis and aging of the catalysts processes.
The PGM content of new and spent catalytic powders is determined. The machine has been calibrated in the area of 1-5000 ppm for Pt, Pd, and Rh
Catalytic nanoparticles distribution on the substrate is examined with optical microscopy.
Opacity and toxic gases (CO, HC, NOx) are determined in real driving conditions.
The highly innovative character of the company in the field of catalytic materials, has led to its participation in 3 projects funded from the RIF:
K. Sakkas et al
Method, device and process for the abatement of SO2 emissions in internal combustion engines.
