Frontiers in Catalysis Design for Sustainable Technologies
Heterogeneous catalysis is quite possibly the most relevant discipline in the chemical industry, spearheading improvements in process sustainability by improving the exploitation of raw materials, enabling the transition from fossil to renewable feedstocks, reducing energy consumption, and minimizing the environmental footprint. To confront these challenges head-on, this vibrant discipline is becoming increasingly design-driven, a shift that is facilitated by the availability of increasingly powerful tools that enable the continued development of fundamental knowledge over different time and length scales. The design of a heterogeneous catalyst, a dream not long ago, is becoming a reality
Who Should Attend
This webinar will benefit beginners and professionals in research, development, processing, or quality control who want to acquire a basic understanding of comprehensive material characterization or who want to refresh and expand existing knowledge. Furthermore, those who are looking for suggestions for further possible uses of physisorption, chemisorption, mercury porosimetry, particle size characterization, and powder rheology, as well as microreaction technology, should attend this webinar.
What You Will Learn
This talk presents recent research to illustrate how the intellectual growth in the understanding of catalyzed processes can kindle revolutionary technological advancements.
