Zeopore's innovation for higher-performance cracking of distilled oil fractions also serves as a fundament in new emerging applications, such as the conversions of complicated feedstocks such as biomass or waste plastics. Zeopore’s highly tunable mesoporization technologies are an enabling component in attaining an efficient catalytic conversion of these heavy molecules. Within this field, Zeopore Technologies  actively contributes to an alternative to fossil fuels, and to integrated chemical recycling of polymer waste streams.


Next to mechanical conversion, several developments and pilot efforts are ongoing regarding the chemical conversion of plastic waste, as a major technology to reduce waste incineration, and enable closing the loop for plastics. Zeolites are a key catalyst ingredient for such processes, and mesoporisation is essential to have such catalysts performing effectively and economically. 

See Cefic plastic waste white paper.


Also for the processing of biorenewable feedstocks, mesoporised zeolites are a key component in making such biochemicals in an effective and cost-competitive way. Zeopore is convinced that mesoporised zeolites will become an essential component in the new era of a sustainable chemical industry.


Zeopore Technologies NV is located on 'Haasrode Industrial Park' near Leuven in Flanders (Belgium), the largest petrochemical cluster in Europe. Innovation is at the heart of Leuven: in 2020 the city was awarded 'European Capital of Innovation' by the European Commission and its university heads Europe's list of most innovative universities.
