The chemical industry is one of the largest consumer of energy due to its heat-intensive processes. Sustainable alternatives with operational benefits exist, such as electrochemistry, however company initiatives often get stuck at an R&D stage. The main reason for this is time: electrochemistry requires a lengthy optimization process that extend commercialization timelines past reasonable time frames.
At Sunthetics, we've developed electrochemical equipment that accelerates the optimization process up to tenfold, lowering the barrier to implementation. Our reactors are thoughtfully designed to reduce variance between experiments and enable easy customization for different reactions. We couple our hardware with a machine-learning enabled software platform to predict, with a small experimental dataset, the optimal, viable process using 10x less experiments.
We're currently commercializing this technology in process development of small drugs in pharma, with plans to scale into agrochemicals and specialty chemicals.
