The ACM group focuses on the design and demonstration of new heterogeneous catalysts and reactor engineering concepts

Overview

The Advanced Catalytic Materials group, headed by Prof. Jorge Gascon, focuses on the design, development and demonstration of new heterogeneous catalysts and reactor engineering concepts. Our aim is to develop and deploy sustainable technologies for the production of chemicals, energy carriers and new environmental applications. Process intensification, feedstock efficiency and reduction of energy usage are our main objectives.

We follow a holistic approach (see figure above), where understanding the most relevant physical and chemical phenomena at the reactor, catalyst and active site levels along with the development of structure-function correlations play a pivotal role. We use state of the art -operando- characterization techniques in combination with advanced synthetic tools and rigorous –high throughput- catalyst testing and reaction engineering concepts to achieve function control over several length scales in catalyst and reactor design.
