A startup company had a concept for a process based on selective oxidation of a light hydrocarbon, but needed experimental data to develop the process design and provide input for economic evaluation. MATRIC undertook a laboratory program that began with formulation and preparation of catalysts. A continuous test unit was constructed and catalysts were studied over a range of conditions. This information was then used in an economic model to evaluate the process economics, and a pilot plant design was prepared for further development of the process.
