MOF Manufacturing

We have over 15 years experience in the manufacture of MOFs using both traditional and novel mechano-chemical methods, with quantities ranging from grams to tonne being manufactured.

At MOF Technologies, we have developed an innovative patent protected mechano-chemical process that allows the accelerated synthesis of MOFs using little or no solvent. As a result, MOF Technologies are one of the only companies in the world able to cost-effectively manufacture high quality MOFs at industrial scale with reduced environmental impact.

MOF Production Method

Mechanochemistry represents a paradigm shift in chemical manufacture: instead of the energy required to initiate a chemical reaction coming from a hot solvent, it is provided by mechanical energy. The MOF material is continuously produced in a powder form either ready for applications without further treatment, or to be formed into shaped material.

Our technology allows the production of MOFs

– In large quantities
– In a cost efficient and scalable manner
– While ensuring consistent high-quality
– And with almost no environmental impact from the manufacturing process.

 

MOF CAPABILITIES

At MOF Technologies we can manufacture the MOF you need at the scale you want. Our state-of-the-art pilot plant facilities enable the up scaled synthesis of MOFs to meet industrial quantity requirements. We routinely manufacture MOFs at multi-kg quantities without compromising MOFs’ incredible intrinsic physical properties; making them available for research, prototyping and incorporation in commercial applications.

 

Shaped MOFs

We can manufacture MOFs in a range of shapes, sizes and strengths including powders, granules and pellets. We can also produce customised shapes to meet specific industrial application needs without compromising any of the key physical properties of these novel adsorbents.

Contact us today to discuss how our team of experts can produce tailored shaped MOFs for your specific requirements.

MOF Catalogue

We can manufacture MOFs with quantities ranging from 25 grams to tonne scale. Our varied catalogue includes 14 MOFs with an extensive range of physical properties.
