Public Profile

NextCAT is commercializing a series of catalysts for use in biodiesel production, developed at the National Biofuels Energy Lab at Wayne State University. Today, over 80% of the U.S. biodiesel producers sit idle due primarily to very high feedstock costs. The NextCAT solution allows producers to lower their overall production costs through savings in not only the incoming feedstock but the process as well through fewer process steps and higher efficiency.
