High-Efficiency Chemical Production

QSI has developed a patented process to manufacture high-performance nanocatalysts that significantly improve process efficiencies and production output in multi-billion dollar industrial chemical processes.

As much as 90% of all chemical processes rely on the use of catalysts (including oil refining, pollution abatement, and production of fuels and chemicals). 60% of all consumer and industrial products (including fertilizers, plastics, pharmaceuticals and batteries) are made with the use of catalysts.

QSI products have unique properties that create superior results with cost-effective scalability. The ability to bulk-manufacture advanced nanoscale particles and leverage their unique catalytic properties in high-performance chemical processes makes us a strong partner and value-added technology provider. These competitive advantages are backed by 10 issued patents, external third party validation and ISO 9001:2008 compliance.

Our initial focus is the $100 billion USD worldwide ammonia market, which offers several hundred million dollars of total available market to QSI. With more than 82% of all ammonia produced globally used to make agricultural fertilizer that grows food more efficiently, ammonia is absolutely critical to the global food supply. In fact, ammonia is responsible for contributing to the growth of up to 50% of the protein consumed by humans.

Production of ammonia consumes nearly 2% of the world’s energy and is responsible for nearly 5% of annual global natural gas consumption. China, the world’s largest ammonia producer, accounts for more than 30% of ammonia produced annually worldwide.

Every ammonia producer can benefit from our technology’s ability to create higher chemical reaction activity rates and faster light-off at lower temperatures and pressures. By lowering the reaction temperature and pressure, thus increasing overall conversion efficiency, our FeNIX iron nanocatalyst accelerators have the potential to increase ammonia production output by 10-15% per plant. According to ammonia industry experts, an increase of 5% in ammonia production in a medium-sized plant can translate into millions of dollars annually.

We don’t believe it’s an exaggeration to say our technology is planet-altering. Our nanotechnology breakthrough promises not only significant energy and infrastructure savings, it also promises improvements in both food and fuel production.
