NineSigma, representing a major auto manufacturer, seeks in-situ polymerization/dehydrogenation technology for hydrocarbons contained in the automobile exhaust gas. The focus is mainly placed on catalyst technologies: the polymerization, oligomerization, or aromatization of low-molecular-weight (C2–C5 ) hydrocarbons into macromolecular hydrocarbons (C6 or higher) and dehydrogenation of C2–C9 paraffin such as pentane and octane. Note that a proposal at this point only needs to have established the basic principle if there is a possibility of applicability to practical use. Proposals from a range of sectors, in addition to automobiles, are welcome.
