In 2016, Chemtrix received a subsidy from LIOF as part of the LimburgMakers program (Project Number IP518CHE) to further develop the product Protrix®. Amongst others, LIOF is responsible for the sector development of the Logistics and Industry sectors. To this end, two programs have been developed: LimburgMakers and LimburgLogistics. LIOF performs these programs on behalf of the Province of Limburg. In these programs, LIOF's Knowledge, Capital and Network instruments come together through an integrated approach.

 

Protrix® is a lab-scale ceramic (SiC) flow reactor, suited for chemical process development at the lab-scale. Protrix® allows processes developed for the fine chemical, agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries to be directly scaled to tonne-scale manufacturing using our Industrial Flow Reactor, Plantrix® MR555.

Fabricated from 3M™ Advanced Ceramics, Protrix® offers unrivalled chemical resistance & heat transfer, features that are necessary for the performance of challenging flow chemistry applications. Within LimburgMakers, a program developed by LIOF on behalf of the Province of Limburg, LIOF's Knowledge, Capital and Network instruments come together through an integrated approach to support innovative companies.  This subsidy proves the trust in Chemtrix and in Protrix® to significantly contribute to the future of continuous manufacturing.
