Commercial-scale catalyst synthesis facility under construction
pH Matter, LLC has begun construction of a commercial-scale COR catalyst production system. The new system represents a 20X increase over the company’s previous “pilot-scale” capacity, and will allow for delivery of up to 400 kilograms per month of its line of COR catalysts. The catalyst materials are used in electrodes for metal-air batteries, fuel cells, sensors, and electrolysis cells. The COR catalyst materials have competitive performance compared to precious metal catalysts at a fraction of the cost. Additionally, the COR materials have unmatched stability and contamination resistance for a number of applications. Company president, Dr. Paul Matter stated, “after successful development and demonstration at the pilot-scale, we are investing in increased commercial production capacity to keep up with customer demand for materials in battery and fuel cell markets.” The system construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.
