MicroTech Ceramics Limited
Delivering breakthrough performance in emissions control
Founding Year: 2014
MicroTech Ceramics is developing novel ceramic substrates for the automotive emissions control market. Using an advanced fabrication technique, substrates are designed with highly ordered and self-assembled microstructures that function as a substrate for catalysts.
The unique microstructures are designed to maximize surface area and enhance the activity of the catalyst so that less precious metals are required to meet emissions regulations. In addition, the substrate design reduces the backpressure in an exhaust system and reduces both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
