ThruPore’s patented innovation is a proprietary formulation and process for making synthetic carbon supports. Carbon has certain properties which make it more attractive than alumina or silica as a catalyst support structure. ThruPore’s carbon is very pure with low ash content, and harder than organic carbons leading to much longer catalyst lifetime.
ThruPore’s carbon specifications:
ThruPore activates its carbon through a variety of methods, including acid, steam, and base.
ThruPore’s unique macro- and meso-porous hierarchical structure lends itself to other applications than catalyst support. Customers are testing for specific adsorbents, separations, and fuel cell applications.
