Technologies was formed in 1984 by Dr. Ian Williams and later acquired
the assets of the Leonard Process Company. Our chemical technology
base is largely in Amines, Amides, Acids, and other isolated process
technologies. The AAT/Leonard know-how embraces 50 years of licensing
technology worldwide with over fifty major projects completed. Most
of the processes involve catalytic synthesis.
chemical units can be split into large commercial units, semi-commercial
units and those primarily developmental in nature. AAT's current
focus is to fully utilize its technology base by: completing commercial
plants for the products listed in its portfolio.
process design combines traditional chemical engineering skills
with the latest knowledge and efficiency techniques. AAT often operates
at the boundaries of chemical engineering involving computer modeling
for resolving the most difficult problems from the most complex
polymerizations to multi-azeotrope distillation sequences, an AAT
AAT has the reputation for designing plants with excellent operation,
maintenance, and safety characteristics, at an optimum cost. New
product development also figures prominently at AAT, as witnessed
by specialty amine technology and mercaptans development.
AAT is committed to the most efficient use of energy and capital.
In many chemical processes, the operating and capital costs associated
with the various process alternatives differ dramatically. Using
the latest optimization methods, we can achieve the process schemes
that require the minimum capital and operating costs. With process
integration and in particular pinch technology, we can simplify
the design of the chemical plant and at the same time, use energy
to maximum efficiency, while maintaining a sound, practical, easy
to operate plant. For those clients who feel their plants or technologies
no longer represent a profitable and state of the art unit, AAT
will conduct an optimization and process integration survey. This
will provide the client with recommendations to assist in the decision-making
