About us

K-INN Tech, kinetics innovation, spin-off of University of Padova and innovative start-up.

We specialize in modeling and in experimental tests on lab scale, that support the design and the optimization of the customers’ manufacturing processes, where chemicals reactions are involved and need to be engineered. Main fields are catalysis, energy recovery, raw and waste materials exploitation.


K-INN Tech inherits over 20 years of experience in applied research at the University of Padua, within the broad field of chemical reaction engineering. Unique skills evolved in conceiving and realizing tailored models and tests, to match and develop the customers’ demands with scientific approach. Let K-INN Tech be the Key for your INNovation in Technology.
