Under Construction

Joint Development Projects

We typically get involved in projects to commercialise technology, or to integrate technology and make new products

On the Interface

3D-CAT understands both the language of industry (and its needs) and that of additive manufacturing (and its potential)

Intellectual Property

Slowly but steadily, our patent portfolio is growing

Pilot Reactors

3D-cat aims to commercialize 3D-printed ceramic lab reactors that can be produced in a tailor-made manner, which, due to the use of ceramic material are more resistant to the chemicals used and maintain the integrity of chemical processes within the reactor.

Reactor Components

We can also print only the mixer unit, the reactor unit, or the separation unit of a reactor, or components thereof, in order to build larger reactors. Our US and EU patents make us a well-placed supplier for this modularity. We have recently experimented with carrier units (for sorbents), with integrated actuators (such as heaters) or with sensors (such as integrated thermo-couples) – patent pending.

3D solutions are tailor-made. That is their unique selling point. This means that any solution has to be created with a customer.
