Catalysis and chemical engineering as enabling elements for circular economy

What is the contribution of catalysis to the circular economy? At this GeCatS Infoday, different aspects of catalytic process in the context of the closure of materials and product loops will be discussed.

Catalysts are required for the targeted breaking down of chemical structures, be it from biomass or recycled materials. But they are also needed to build new molecules from resources such as CO2 or monomers. Thus, a circular economy depends on the development and application of a large variety of catalytic processes that will be presented at this event.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
