Our second product is Propylene Oxide (PO). PO is a high value chemical intermediate used in the production of polyurethane chemicals and personal care products. The various processes for propylene oxide all suffer from one or more of the following challenges: significant up-front capital requirements, high power consumption, low-value byproducts and significant wastewater production. eShuttle™ PO uses less capital with only half of the traditional chlor-alkali capacity and significantly less power. In addition, the catalysis system operates in much more concentrated solutions, which reduces waste water by 80% compared to the conventional chlorohydrin-based process.
We are currently scaling eShuttle™ PO from the laboratory with more news on this process in the not too distant future!
