Econic Technologies develops catalyst technologies that incorporate waste carbon dioxide (CO2) into polyols to bring benefit to the plastics industry.
Econic Technologies was born from a vision where catalyst chemistry is used to turn waste CO2 into positive economic and environmental potential. Incorporating waste CO2 as a feedstock using our innovative catalyst technologies reduces the reliance on expensive fossil fuels, turning scientific research into business advantage while delivering environmental gain for the benefit of all.
This vision was crystallised by Professor Charlotte Williams, then at Imperial College London, and now Professor of Inorganic Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford. It was supported by investment from IP Group plc, then Imperial Innovations, and Norner Verdandi.
Much progress has been made since then.
Econic’s catalyst technologies have been patented, validated in pilot operations and continue to secure additional investment.
A talented team of scientists, engineers and commercial managers now conduct their cutting-edge work in a state-of-the-art facility at Alderley Park, the internationally renowned science hub south of Manchester.
All of our efforts are intently focused on the future. A future where waste CO2, a damaging greenhouse gas, is turned into commercial and environmental gain. A future that starts now.
