Adding value to the chemical industries

Platinum based catalyst gauzes have been in use ever since ammonia is catalytically oxidized to yield either nitric acid or hydrogen cyanide. Therefore they are required in two main industrial processes: Andrussow process and Ostwald process. Both processes do convert ammonia (NH3) into precursors dedicated for a wide range of uses in several chemical industrial applications, such as:

  • Nitrates and blends in the Fertilizer Market
  • Technical Nitrates for mining purposes in the Explosives Market
  • Caprolactarme and Hydroxylamines in the Chemical Intermediates Market
  • Methionine for mainly chicken feed in the Animal Feed Market
  • Products based on polymethacrylates in the Transparent Plastics Market
