Reduction chemistry made profit-centric by Newreka’s Platform Technology #1

Chemistry : Aromatic Nitro to Amine reduction

Applicable : When the nitro and amine are both soluble in water

‘Greener’ alternative to conventional approach :

  • The nitro is reduced in the presence of Newreka’s proprietary catalysts “G-Cat” and “R-Cat”
  • The spent G-Cat is filtered out and the rest is sent to a crystallizer and centrifuge from where the amine is taken out
  • The mother liquor is treated with R-Cat to remove organic and inorganic impurities and then recycled into the processpatent technology IP 242146

Advantages :

  Economics   –   Increase profitability by over 5% through a Profit-Centric   approach
  Quality   –   High Purity, low Impurity profile while integrating   Recycle@SourceTM  Solutions
  Quantity   –   High selectivity leading to increase in yield by 5-10%
  Productivity   –   Reduce process batch time by 30%
  Environment   –   Minimize liquid effluents by 80%
  Safety   –   Freedom from high pressure, incidental hazards, pyrophoricity,   acidic and alkaline conditions
  Energy   –   Minimize energy consumption by 20%
