Heterogeneous Catalysts for Sustainable Industry

25 November 2019 08:30-18:00, London, United Kingdom


Introduction
Catalysis is a key enabling technology for achieving efficient and more sustainable utilisation of resources as well as being crucial to the UK economy. It provides lower energy processes, reduced waste and pollution and improved selectivity in making added-value products for all sectors. About 90% of all chemical processes use catalysts with the estimated economic impact of said processes at 30–40% global GDP. Heterogeneous catalysts are already a key component of this sector, from petrochemical conversions to catalytic converters, and offer such significant benefits as catalyst/product separation, reuse and recyclability. As the world moves towards more sustainable technologies and feedstocks to ensure a cleaner future heterogeneous catalysts will have an even bigger role to play. This opens the door to new next generation environmentally benign catalysts, or even requires looking to the past for the more traditional zeolite and clay based catalysts to be redesigned for the new challenges. This workshop, a collaboration between industrial and academic minded scientists, is aimed at providing a platform for new scientists to learn more about heterogeneous catalysts and surface reactivity and for more experienced scientists to look to future possibilities
