Development of a bifunctional hierarchically structured zeolite based nano-catalyst using 3D-technology for direct conversion of methane into aromatic hydrocarbons via methane dehydroaromatization

Project description

High-efficiency bi-functional catalyst for methane conversion into high-value chemicals

The EU-funded ZEOCAT-3D project proposes an alternative to the current production methods of aromatics. This pioneering process involves obtaining high-value chemicals (such as benzene and naphthalene) from methane sources like biogas and natural gas through an improved catalytic process called methane dehydroaromatisation (MDA). The project will introduce the use of hierarchical zeolite structures synthesised by 3D-printing to overcome the drawbacks of low methane conversion, low selectivity, and quick deactivation due to carbon deposition onto the catalyst. The methodology of the project will go from laboratory to pilot-scale demonstration in a real environment.
