3D Printed Jet with In-situ Methanation for the Determination of Carbon Dioxide in Various Matrices

Alberta, Canada, October 18, 2018 – The Dow Chemical Company has presented its prestigious WesTEC Award to Dr. Andrew Jones, of Activated Research Company (ARC). The award  presentation took place at the Western Canada Operations Technical Excellence Conference in Fort Saskatchewan, an internal technology Conference held annually at Dow Canada.

Dr. Jones is the CEO and Co-Founder of Activated Research Company based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. ARC’s technology was selected as the award winner amid a pool of over sixty  applicants. The submission communicated how ARC’s 3D Printed Jetanizer™ would benefit the Dow Chemical Company, add value to their analytical research and development, and positively impact the technical community.

“It is a great honor to be recognized by a company like Dow.” Said Dr. Jones, “I see a bright future for analytical chemistry, in large part due to the brilliance and innovation happening at Dow. Dow’s commitment to technical excellence and innovation aligns well with ARC’s reactive chromatography products, which improve productivity and analytical capabilities.”
