Commitment to catalysis
Haldor Topsoe’s technologies and catalysts are used around the world creating a better environment – in the refining industry ensuring cleaner fuels, for cleaning power industry flue gasses and reducing emission from heavy duty vehicles. In chemical plants catalysts and processes optimise resources and ensure highly efficient energy processes.
Research – technology – catalysts
The synergy between research and development, process design, engineering, catalyst production and sales form the basis of the continuous optimisation of our catalysts and technologies.
Topsoe’s research activities are focused according to feedback from industrial practice. Engineering design parameters are firmly based on in-house knowledge and technology resulting from research and development efforts. Our catalysts and processes are developed in close collaboration between research, engineering, and production, ensuring the creation of catalysts and processes, which meet and exceed clients’ expectations.
Topsoe’s commitment to catalysis has created a strong and multi-facetted business with a product portfolio spanning from catalysts to proprietary equipment, process design, engineering and service.
We are known for our commitment to catalysis – a commitment we share with our clients.
Industrial production around the globe must comply with increasingly strict emissions standards by filtering more gases and particles out of flue gases. This is challenging in high-dust production such as waste-to-energy plants, steel and cement plants, biomass-based power plants and many other industrial facilities. At a medical waste incinerator in Thailand, 312 CataFlex™ filter bags […]
As part of a plan to address climate change, Topsoe commits to setting ambitious carbon emission reduction targets in line with climate science. Topsoe will set long-term science-based targets to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions across its value chain. The company’s short-term target is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its own production by 15% in 2021.
Greenergy has announced that they will invest in Front End Engineering Design (FEED) of a project to produce low-carbon transportation fuels from waste tires. In the first phase, the planned facility will process up to 300 tons of shredded tires each day to produce low-carbon, low-sulfur drop-in fuels that can be blended into diesel and […]
A new purpose and vision launch Topsoe’s ambition to lead the drive to reduce carbon emissions from fuels and chemicals. Through the purpose of “perfecting chemistry for a better world”, Topsoe wants to achieve its vision “to be recognized as the global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies by 2024”.
Haldor Topsoe, a world leader in catalysis, has officially opened an advanced automotive catalysts plant in Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA) – a 600 million renminbi investment (more than 90 million US dollars).
Topsoe’s technology can convert natural gas into diesel fuel. In this way, the natural gas, usually flared at the oilfields, is put to use, increasing resource efficiency. Burning gas Natural gas is recovered with crude oil at oil fields. However, natural gas is too expensive to transport from the remote oil fields and the gas […]
Haldor Topsoe has developed a technology that converts waste products into the clean fuel DME. The preferred fuel In the early 90’s, Topsoe researchers discovered that dimethyl ether (DME ) can be used as a fuel. DME has high energy efficiency with minimal environmental impact. The exhaust from vehicles running on DME is very clean, because the level […]
Topsoe’s TIGAS technology converts waste wood into synthetic gasoline. No adjustments are needed – TIGAS gasoline is compatible with existing engines and fuelling stations. Comparable prices The TIGAS demonstration project converts 20 tons of waste wood into synthetic gasoline daily. This climate-friendly gasoline has the same fuel properties as gasoline based on oil – at comparable production prices. […]
Today, approximately 70% of renewable energy consumption in Denmark is bioenergy-based, mostly in the form of straw, wood and renewable wastes. This White Paper gives an overview of Denmark’s solutions, cases and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions.
The aim of the white paper is to share some of Denmark’s solutions and experiences from our ongoing transition to a sustainable agriculture and food cluster that is based on renewable biological resources and ultra resource-efficient production. We believe that by doing so, we can make a tangible contribution to achieving progress on the global […]
Clean air in cities, shipping, agriculture and industry production is a matter of global health. Consequently, this white paper highlights some of the best practice examples of Danish clean air solutions, which can be implemented in different sectors to reduce ambient air pollution.
In this whitepaper we share some of Denmark’s solutions and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions. Due to the extensive use of bioenergy, there is an abundance of expertise available in this field. In addition to hosting several top-efficient, full-scale biomass plants, Denmark is an industry hub and testing ground for […]
