Catalysis for emission control and energy processes

ChE-410

Lecturer(s) :

Kröcher Oliver

Language:

English

Summary

The course is an introduction to heterogeneous catalysis for environmental protection and energy production. It focusses on catalytic exhaust gas cleaning for stationary power plants and internal combustion engines as well as catalytic systems relevant for gaseous and liquid fuel production.

Content

Emission control and energy processes will be teached partly by means of examples from research, showing how the basics of catalysis, advanced catalyst preparation and catalyst characterization are used to understand and develop catalytic systems in this field.

Keywords

Heterogeneous catalysis

Emission control

Exhaust gas catalysis

Fuel synthesis

Renewable fuels

Learning Prerequisites
