A virtuous circle - NovaCrack
NovaCrack is a rapid depolymerisation process that transforms mixed plastic waste into high-value hydrocarbons which can be converted back to virgin polymers, thereby closing the loop for a truly circular economy.

Boiling stones - Zeolites
Zeolites, derived from the Greek words zeo (to boil) and lithos (stone), are aluminosilicate minerals that seemed to froth or boil when heated in a blowpipe in flame. Zeolites are used in a lot of industries due internal pore structure. We have developed a novel method of making zeolites with a tailored porosity in a timely and energy efficient way that also improves its performance in catalysis.
