Under the care and guidance of a dedicated team of professional researchers and technical support staff, the Catalysis Institute regularly undertakes contractual research programmes for industry, government and commercial entities, both within South Africa and internationally, through its subsidiary Centre for Catalysis Research. These services include, where possible, standardised catalysis-related characterisation and sample analysis, to short-, medium- and long-term materials development and catalyst performance evaluations – over a wide range of chemistries and industrially relevant process parameters.

Furthermore, certain commercial products emanating from intellectual property generated within the Institute are available via various subsidiary companies of the University of Cape Town, namely HyPlat (Pty) Ltd and Cape CatalytiX (Pty) Ltd.
