Who are we?
Sunthetics is developing sustainable and electrically driven chemical processes to replace traditional heat-powered ones.
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 lower energy consumption, better resource usage, safer processes, and the cost-efficient integration of renewable energies to replace fossil fuels.
Our first target is the pharmaceutical industry, where electrochemistry enables safer and cleaner production routes to new substances that can address unmet medical needs.
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 chemicals. We leverage the use of machine-learning tools to lower the barrier to implementation and reach unprecedented efficiency values and energy cost reduction.
The optimization process for chemical reactions is often empirically driven. This means that chemists will test operation points that, based on reaction understanding, will yield optimal results. For electrochemical reactions, this process can be quite time and resource intensive as small tweaks in many different factors can have a large effect on production. Machine-learning enables the creation of complex patterns between the different process variables and quickly pinpoints the optimal operation point.
We are focusing on pharma as our entry to 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 petrochemicals. Sunthetics is a platform to make the chemical industry green, one reaction at a time.
