Catalysis Engineering

The Catalysis Engineering team focuses on the development & demonstration of new catalysis and reactor engineering concepts devoted to sustainable technologies with emphasis on process intensification, feedstock efficiency, and reduction of both energy usage as well as the influence of human and industrial activities on the environment. In the team advanced functional porous materials are developed. This contains structured catalysts (metal-organic frameworks, covalent-organic frameworks, and zeolites), as well as materials for separation, membranes, sensors and electronics. The team develops multi-phase reaction systems (gas-liquid-liquid-solid) and multi-functional systems (combinations of different reactions, separations, electro- and/or photocatalysis).
