Specially Shaped Selective Oxidation Catalyst for Formaldehyde Production


FAMAX® DS is a specially shaped catalyst for methanol to formaldehyde oxidation with superior productivity and profitability. Engravings, on the top and bottom surfaces of the catalyst ring, generate a free path for gas flow. Thus, the pressure drop is reduced significantly.

    Clariant, a focused and innovative specialty chemical company, today announced that it will be collaborating with its engineering partner, Wuxi Xiyuan, in two new projects to supply their joint formaldehyde production technology. The new contracts, awarded by Shandong Yushiju Chemical and Shandong Sunny Wealth New Materials, will grow the number of customers using the partners’ advanced technology to six in a short period of time. The rapidly rising demand is due to the technology’s significantly higher efficiency and selectivity compared to the traditional silver-based method of formaldehyde production.
