Catalyst synthesis development and polymerisation have been a key part of our laboratories for 40 years. We provide an industrial expertise in polymerisation, processing, applications and markets which have been developed through own research as well as cooperation with technology owners and catalyst manufactures.
A cornerstone of Norner capabilities is our advanced gas reactor laboratory for polymerization and gas process simulations.
We provide competence and capability to be your partner in catalyst development and characterisation.
Our reactor laboratory is well equipped for high purity work in extreme conditions by using hazardous chemicals.
The advanced gas transportation and inert handling system (e.g. several glove boxes) together with the explosion (EX) proofed area fulfills our devotion to safety work.
We are constantly updating our reactors according to latest technology.
We can do reactor modifications according to your needs.
