Velocys and PQ partner for catalyst manufacturing

Velocys plc, the renewable fuels company, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with PQ Corporation (PQ) for the supply of commercial quantities of Velocys’ proprietary catalyst to be used in multiple biorefineries incorporating its technology. PQ is a leading global provider of specialty catalysts, services, materials and chemicals for the refinery, emissions control and petrochemical industries.

Catalyst produced by PQ has already been used to successfully produce renewable transportation fuel and other products at ENVIA, the world’s first commercial smaller scale gas-to-liquids plant, which incorporates Velocys technology. In addition, PQ will manufacture the catalyst to be used by Velocys’ licensees as well as by the biorefinery projects that the company is developing with its industry partners, including its US biorefinery that will convert waste woody biomass into 20 million gallons per year of low-carbon transportation fuels and its plant in the UK that will convert waste into sustainable jet fuel.

Paul Schubert, COO of Velocys, said:
“PQ has the proven capability to produce Velocys’ catalyst following our rigorous commercial production methodology. Our relationship with PQ gives us a great combination of a trusted and high-quality manufacturer who can deliver for us all over the world. After their successful production and deployment of our catalyst at the ENVIA biorefinery, we’re now ready to move to the next phase of catalyst manufacturing, with greater commercial quantities produced for future projects.”

David J. Taylor, PQ’s Executive Vice President and President – Environmental Catalysts and Services, said:
“Our highest priority is to safely manufacture, market and distribute products in a responsible manner that protects the environment. We do this, in part, by collaborating with our customers to create new products and technologies that further our mission. Our partnership with Velocys is a perfect example of this.”
