Optimising Technology Portfolios


Enabled Future Limited was incorporated on October 4th, 2016. Its mission is to optimise technology portfolios in the context of increased adoption of Advanced Manufacturing Techniques (AMT), the Circular Economy and Industry 4.0.  Its vision is to help stakeholders in the development and manufacture of catalyst, chemical and material technologies to navigate the changes occurring in their operational and market environments because of these trends.  The goals of EFL’s services are for clients to enjoy a virtuous circle of accurately targeted, patent-protected innovations, rapid technology commercialisation, faster return on investment, increased market share, revenue and profits.

EFL’s goals and values encompass innovation for long-term societal benefit: providing support for commercialisation of technologies, products and services which create jobs, increase GDP and quality of life in a manner that has the least possible negative impact on the environment.

EFL’s approach utilises experience gained over 15 years in the catalyst, precious metals, chemicals and recycling sectors as well as five years in consulting. This experience is combined with the ability to gather up-to-date intelligence from secondary research of a wide array of public domain information and deep patent analysis. This information is then evaluated and reality checked using primary research with contacts along all parts of the supply chain. This approach provides a systematic, in-depth view of companies, technologies and market applications.
