Umicore is a global materials technology and recycling group. We reduce harmful emissions, power the vehicles and technologies of the future, and give new life to used metals. Our materials and services provide tomorrow’s sustainable solutions for clean mobility and recycling. We are unique in offering material technology for all vehicle platform types and in offering an efficient and environmentally sound closed loop solution. Our overriding goal of sustainable value creation is based on an ambition to develop, produce and recycle materials in a way that fulfils our mission: materials for a better life.
Due to the high global warming potential of methane, gaseous engine emissions play a crucial role in the overall balance. Umicore will drive forward the development of a catalyst for methane oxidation and thus make an important contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from future marine propulsion systems. The catalyst will be optimized to the specific requirements of the different combustion processes to ensure the best possible activity and high durability while maintaining low backpressure.
