|High-performance plastic resins made with Grace's CONSISTA® polypropylene catalysts, because of their inherent strength, require less polymer per article, reducing the weight of automobile parts, thereby improving vehicle fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.|
PHONOSORB® adsorbents made with 3A zeolite synthetic molecular sieves prevent moisture accumulation in multi-pane glass windows and allow window manufacturers to meet the EU's quality requirements for reducing energy usage for heating and cooling.
PERKASIL® precipitated silicas are used to produce low rolling resistant tires to improve vehicle fuel efficiency. In addition, they improve tear strength, abrasion resistance, and aging resistance of tires, lengthening tire life.
|Grace's silica-based DARACLAR® 9000HP reduces water use and solid waste and eliminates the use of diatomaceous earth in the beer brewing process without impacting product quality. It has allowed brewers to increase capacity while reducing the environmental footprint of the brewing process.|
Grace's broad portfolio of fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalysts includes the series of ACHIEVE® catalysts, each designed to maximize the efficiency of the FCC unit above the industry average. Optimizing refinery operations reduces both energy and raw material use per unit of output. ACHIEVE® catalysts also enable the production of high-octane fuel without aromatics.
Makers of biodiesel, an alternative to petroleum-based diesel fuel, use Grace's TriSyl® silica to maximize the efficiency of the biomass conversion process from pre-treatment of base oil to final polishing of the fuel.
|Refineries around the world are committed to reducing sulfur oxides (SOx) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from the fluid cracking catalyst unit. Grace's DESOX®, DENOX® and CP®P additives allow refiners to meet even the toughest air emission standards. For example, a refinery in Greece reduced NOx emissions by 65 percent with no negative impact on unit performance or yields using a combination of Grace's CP®P and DENOX® technologies.|
ART Hydroprocessing, Grace's joint venture with Chevron, is at the forefront of refining technologies to enable shippers to reduce sulfur emissions in compliance with the 2020 International Marine Organization standards. Among many examples, ART's ICR® 1000 catalysts enable production of fuels meeting the world's toughest environmental standards while processing difficult feeds without sacrificing run lengths or yields.
Grace's LUDOX® colloidal silicas are key ingredients in emission control devices that enable vehicle manufacturers to meet the strictest vehicle emissions standards.
SYLOBEAD®, a molecular sieve from Grace, is used in the dehydration of ethanol, an essential step in the production of ethanol-based fuels.
|High-performance plastic resins made with Grace's CONSISTA® polypropylene catalysts produce less residuals, no peroxide byproducts, and use no phthalates.|
SHIELDEX® silica enables customers to create non-toxic anti-corrosive pigments without the addition of heavy metals, eliminating the need to add lead, chromate, or zinc phosphates.
