Who are we?
Sunthetics is developing sustainable and electrically driven chemical processes to replace traditional heat-powered ones. Our first venture is geared towards a greener manufacturing path for Nylon.
The use of these chemicals has become indispensable in our every day lives and the chemical industry, responsible for their manufacture, has become the third largest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions
We are a start-up focused on helping the chemical industry become more sustainable. Chemical processes are very energy-intensive and harmful to the environment, as they rely on fossil fuels. But there is a movement to electrify the chemical industry, enabling the cost-efficient integration of renewable energies to replace fossil fuels. We are starting by redesigning the manufacturing process for the main precursor of Nylon 6,6, a premium material used in a multitude of sectors.
We are part of a new generation of chemical engineers that have a responsibility to the environment and to our society. We incorporate sustainability in our solution as an asset, and not a disadvantage. As chemical engineers we understand that the importance of cost and efficiency in chemical manufacturing, but we found the way integrate sustainability in those advantages. With our process, we can reduce costs and improve efficiency while significantly reducing carbon emission, energy, and raw material usage.
We are visionaries, because we believe in sustainable chemical manufacturing, and will continue to make the chemical industry green, one reaction at a time.
We develop equipment for the efficient, sustainable and cost-effective manufacture of adiponitrile, the main precursor for Nyon 6,6. We have improved the electrically driven production route, reaching unprecedented efficiency values and energy cost reduction.
Nylon is used in textiles, engineering plastics, and automobile parts. Right now, the demand for nylon is rapidly increasing as heavyweight metal is being replaced by lightweight plastics. This has caused a shortage in the Nylon supply chain, which is only worsened by the polluting and dangerous production processes implemented. Sunthetics addresses the need for innovative, safer, scalable, and efficient manufacturing processes for Nylon intermediates.
Nylon is our entry into the market, but we are not stopping there. We can apply this type of electrically driven reaction to a variety of chemicals spanning a multitude of sectors, from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals. Sunthetics is a platform to make the chemical industry green, one reaction at a time.
