Catalysis scientists choose Micromeritics® to help them solve climate change challenges

With increasing energy consumption and inefficiencies in energy systems causing 60% of chemical energy to be wasted, there are grave concerns for global climate change. Catalysis has the potential to solve many fundamental environmental and technological problems, including current global energy challenges. However, for success, an effective catalyst is required. When evaluating catalytic properties, instrumentation reliability is a given, however the strength of the technical expertise offered by a service provider is also vital.

In a recent survey, 81% of Micromeritics customers stated that the scientific and technical support was differentiated from other companies they considered, and whilst 86% found its product performance to be superior (TVID: D6D-47A-948). In additional interviews with catalysis researchers partnering with Micromeritics, the majority were satisfied that the company helped them to solve specific challenges.

“Generally all companies will tell you that they offer a good support system, however it is not until you work with them that you can understand the quality on offer. The technical expertise of Micromeritics is the distinguishing factor that truly sets them apart, and any challenges and queries are promptly answered by an experienced engineer,” said Dr. Alan McCue, Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen, working in the team with Prof. James Anderson. Having the ability to perform research promptly ensures that Dr. Alan McCue’s research can proceed without delay, allowing data to be collected about the suitability of specific catalysts for tackling environmental challenges.

As a long-standing customer, Prof. Javier Pérez-Ramírez, Professor of Catalysis Engineering at ETH Zurich has developed a strong partnership with Micromeritics. Prof. Javier Pérez-Ramírez first chose to partner with Micromeritics as the knowledge of the scientists and qualities of the instruments on offer were unmatched. More than seventeen years on, this is still true. “What Micromeritics has, is an optimal balance between high-quality instrumentation and sound technical expertise,” said Prof. Javier Pérez-Ramírez.
