An increasing number of startups are putting their footprint on the European high-tech landscape. Our team is delighted to introduce one of these innovative startups: Stoli Catalysts Ltd, an English start-up specialised in the production of bespoke catalyst-coated tube reactors using a patented coating technology.
Stoli reactor tubes can fit existing flow reactors for the gram to kilo- scale continuous manufacturing of a wide range of fine chemicals. The Taylor flow and millimeter dimensions ensure excellent reaction heat/mass transfer, safety and reduced production costs.
Stoli tube reactors can be used for a wide range of synthetic processes requiring catalysis, specifically tailoring for fine chemical manufacturing such as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, polymers, fuel additive, dyes and fragrances.
As any other company born in Academia, Stoli Catalysts originated from a discovery made one day by Dr Nikolay Cherkasov while carrying out a Friday afternoon experiment. It may have been just another paper (which it was) but the Innovation-to-Commercialisation programme (ICURe) by the Innovate UK made it possible for the scientific discovery to evolve into a spin-out company called Stoli Catalysts. The developed technology is so novel and different from what is available on the market that it is bound to revolutionize the fine chemicals industry.
Professor Rebrov has been awarded with 2 ERC grants to develop this ground-breaking technology: ERC Staring Grant 279867 – RFMiFiCS “RF-enhanced Microprocessing for Fine Chemicals Synthesis using Catalysts Supported on Magnetic Nanoparticles” and the ERC Proof of Concept 693739 – MiCARF “Multi-tubular Catalytic Reactor for Flexible Production of Fine Chemicals”. These grants have confirmed Professor Rebrov as champion-league scientist who conducts highly innovative and high-risk research at the frontiers of the existing knowledge and develops groundbreaking technologies at the laboratory scale. Besides the 2 completed ERC projects mentioned above, Prof. Rebrov has recently won an ERC Synergy Grant 810182 – SCOPE “Surface-COnfined fast-modulated Plasma for process and Energy intensification in small molecules conversion” that will introduce a ground-breaking approach to use renewable energy in three major industrial reactions (N2 fixation, CH4 valorization and CO2 conversion to liquid solar fuels).
