Core Competencies

Exelus' core competencies include catalyst development, reaction engineering, and chemical process design, each informed by a deep understanding of the fuels, and chemical industries. Employees of Exelus have successfully transitioned R&D projects into commercial ventures, which have led to large, profitable markets for the companies involved.

Exelus relies on that experience to screen potential ideas that are able to leverage our core competencies into creating new process technologies in areas perceived to have extremely large pay-off potential.

Strategic Alliance Partner

As a process technology licensor, Exelus develops the core technology through its own R&D capabilities, typically designing both the catalyst and the reactor. That knowledge is then licensed to end users by a technology licensor.

Exelus has partnered with KBR to license its Solid-Acid Alkylation process (K-SAAT) as well as its Propane Dehydrogenation Technology (K-Pro)
