About Us

UNICAT Catalyst Technologies, LLC was formed in January of 2000 as an unrivaled company in the field of heterogeneous catalysis. The driving force behind UNICAT’s formation are three fundamental principles missing from the traditional larger suppliers in the market.

  • Flexibility to meet unique customer requirements quickly

  • Dedication to lower costs for industrial users

  • Innovation to improve niche catalyst market services ignored by large industrial suppliers

UNICAT is proud to have stayed true to this course having developed over 100 innovative products in niche catalyst markets such as Sulfur Guards, Chloride Removal, Arsine Purification, Hydroprocessing, Bed Grading technology, Polymerization, Sweetening Process and Synthetic Gas (Hydrogen) while maintaining a cost structure lower than all current competitors in the market.
