Velocys has supply agreements in place for its commercial Fischer-Tropsch catalyst with two world class manufacturers.
Commercial production of the initial Fischer-Tropsch catalyst charge for the Oklahoma City plant has been completed and certified according to Velocys' quality control protocols. The catalyst meets all performance criteria for the project, with excellent alignment of test results between commercially-produced and laboratory-produced catalysts.
Commercial catalyst is manufactured in a made-for-purpose state-of-the-art manufacturing line for the sole use of Velocys. This ensures that there is no cross-contamination by other company's catalysts and allows the fine tuning of conditions for optimal performance.
The current status is the culmination of a four-year programme to take the best laboratory-scale catalyst and scale it for commercial production. The catalyst scale-up programme provides one example of the thoroughness, rigor and completeness with which the company approaches all aspects of its technology development.
