This opportunity provides a patented, 100% efficient process in which hydrogen obtained from the adiabatic dehydrogenation process is used as the heat energy source.

Dehydrogenation processes are used extensively to produce styrene in the Fine Chemicals, Oleo Chemicals, Petrochemicals and Detergents Industries.

Likely feed stocks to be used in this dehydrogenation process include hydrocarbons such as:

  • Ethylbenzene;

  • Methanol;

  • Butane & Butene; and

  • Cyclohexane

…as well as inorganic compounds such as hydrogen sulfide or hydrogen iodide.

Intellectual Capital
On April 1, 2001, the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology began operations as the "new" AIST. The new AIST is a research organization that comprises 15 research institutes previously under the former Agency of Industrial Science and Technology in the Ministry of International Trade and Industry and the Weights and Measures Training Institute.

AIST is Japan's largest public research organization with research facilities and more than 3,200 employees across Japan.

AIST is seeking to license these technologies and assist with their commercialization. A number of investment options are currently under consideration.

Consideration will be provided to a range of financial, strategic, and commercial investment partnerships.
