New Heterogeneous Catalysts for Clean Energy Production and Environmental Protection

The basic research topics of the laboratory are in the interdisciplinary fields of: Heterogeneous catalysts preparation and physico-chemical characterization; Nature of the catalytic action and mechanism of heterogeneous catalytic reactions; Catalytic processes and technologies for hydrogen production by reforming of natural gas, biogas and bioethanol; Hydrogen purification from CO by water gas shift reaction (WGSR) and WGSR in the presence of sulphur compounds; preferential CO oxidation (PROX); Fine removal of CO2 from hydrogen-rich gas streams by hydrogenation of CO2 to methane (methanation); Catalysts for volatile organic combustions (VOC) and CO oxidation; Layered nickel phyllosilicates employable as catalyst precursors for partial hydrogenation of vegetable oils aimed at obtaining high-quality hardened oils and fats for food Industry; Design of catalytic systems based on non-precious metals deposited on carbon and ceramic materials for use as anode in hydrogen fuel cells.
