Enabling innov​ation through chemistry

DESCA & The innovation ecosystem

FCG Chemical in Exton, PA has developed, based on its proprietary 

 microwave technology, a suite of general purpose chemical processors that are designed to replace the chemical industry's traditional batch reactors. The processors allow chemists to lower operating costs while simultaneously offering cleaner/greener chemical reactions by reducing the amount of energy and solvents used and substituting with more environmentally friendly solvents. The Sustainable Chemistry Alliance assisted FCG Chemical with locating wet lab space for proof-of-concept as well as mentoring for product commercialization.
