Alliances

AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry

MSAR® technology is supplied to oil refiners under license by Quadrise, using chemicals and expertise from AkzoNobel, a world leader in surface chemistry. This ensures that the technology is able to produce cost competitive and highly stable MSAR® fuels to meet the specific transportation, storage and application requirements from virtually any oil refinery residual or heavy crude oil streams.

Quadrise has worked jointly with AkzoNobel since 2004.  Our agreements cover opportunities worldwide with respect to exclusive commercial supply and joint RDI and sharing of IP as appropriate.

Quadrise as integrator

AkzoNobel and Quadrise have a mutual interest in commercialising the MSAR® business, with each party bringing complementary skill sets to project development. AkzoNobel provides expertise in additives, whilst Quadrise brings the overall application expertise required for an MSAR® project through the alignment of producers (oil refineries) and consumers (e.g. power generators, industrial users or marine operators).

 

University of Surrey

Quadrise has a Collaboration Agreement with the Research University of Surrey in Guildford which provides for the shared use of the University’s Centre for Petroleum and Surface Chemistry (CPSC), an advanced research facility within the Department of Chemistry.

The programme at the University is directed by Professor Spence Taylor, a world class expert on surfactant and emulsion technology with over 20 years’ experience in the petroleum industry with BP, undertaking applied research to underpin IP, as well as upstream and downstream businesses. The CPSC has first class facilities and is ideally equipped with additional hardware and expertise to meet Quadrise and our clients’ applied research needs.
