Organization profile

Organisation profile

We carry out research from fundamental catalyst development to full reactor design and integration. Our goal is to develop novel catalyst/reactor configurations with increased effectiveness and stability whilst reducing energy and material consumption.

Catalytic processes are key enabling technologies to address environmental and economic challenges in the 21st century. They have wide application, including:

  • efficient generation of materials from renewable sources
  • generation of energy from the sun
  • environmental clean up

Catalysis and reactor engineering are at the heart of our current industrial model. Over 80% of manufactured materials need the application of catalysis during production. There is an industry-wide drive to develop more sustainable and efficient processes using multifunctional materials. We are at the forefront of research in this crucial sector, supporting three major themes:

  • Catalysts and reactors design across the scales
  • energy generation and transformation
  • waste-free chemical transformations and environmental protections
