Chemistry of Clean Energy Conversion, Storage, and Production

Nano Catalysis for Clean Energy and Environmentally Friendly Chemical Production (#81)

Nanotechnology is defined as "the design and understanding of matter with dimensions of 1 to 100 nanometers (nm), where unique phenomena enable novel applications".
Approximately one third of material gross product involves a catalytic process somewhere in the production chain. Thus, production of nonmaterials for catalytic applications has been one the interesting topics for academia and industry leading to many process and product development, and numerous research publications and patents. The objective of this symposium is to bring together experts from academia and industry to discuss recent developments and share knowledge related to new nanocatalysts developed for clean fuels and chemicals production. Nanocatalysts to be discussed include catalysts used for production of biofuels, synthesis gas, hydrogen, mid-distillates, alcohols, oxidative coupling of methane (OCM), hydrodesulphurization (HDS), hydrodenitrogenation (HDN), hydrodearomatization (HAD), hydrodemetalization (HDM), Fischer-Tropsch (FT) process, and other catalytic reactions. The symposium also includes novel preparation methods and characterization techniques of nano-catalysts, and ingenious and improved methods for clean energy and environmentally friendly chemicals production.
