Catalyst design and optimisation by fast combinatorial analysis (COMBICAT)

Objective

Global market pressures are driving European chemical industry to reduce R&D cycle times and costs to provide high quality products or new production technologies. The development of new efficient solid catalyst for heterogeneously catalyzed reactions often contradicts these requirements as it involves expensive, time consuming steps. In the COMBICAT project the combinatorial approach is used to overcome these obstacles. The set targets are to develop innovative methods for high-speed catalyst preparation, testing and selection. Then these methods are to be used to discover new compound combinations as new and highly performing catalysts for industrially relevant reactions. Better catalysts would result in reduction of energy consumption and undesired side-products. The developed technological concepts and apparatus will be sold as a spin-off through high-tech SME.
