Energenics is a successful, well established SME dedicated to innovation. Originally a nanotechnology spin out from Oxford University and located on the University’s Begbroke Science Park, we have a successful track record in the discovery and commercialisation of novel speciality chemical additives, specialising in cerium oxide nanoparticle dispersions.


Cerium oxide is both an oxidation catalyst and a UV absorber and our products are based on these key properties. Although an SME, we employ technical and commercial specialists with many years of experience in the global speciality chemicals industry and we aim to match the levels of professionalism, product quality and customer service of our larger counterparts.

Energenics produces Envirox™, a fuel borne catalyst for diesel fuel. Major transport operators have used Envirox™ to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions. More recently Envirox™ has achieved a strong market position as a performance component in aftermarket fuel additives for regenerating Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs).

Since 2010 Energenics scientists have been developing a new range of UV Absorber additives drawing upon the results of several grant-funded research collaborations; including WOODLIFE (EU FP7 project) and SENCoat (Innovate UK project) as well as our own on-going R&D programme. This led to the development of our innovative UV absorbers which are creating new opportunities with ground breaking performance in protecting the appearance of exterior wood.

Energenics Europe Ltd is a privately held, UK registered company.
