19th Edition of Global Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering & Technology | Rome, Italy | Hybrid Event

A catalyst is critical to many reactions. Reactions in chemistry and chemical engineering. Reactions to motivate our next generation of students to become excellent researchers and scientific leaders.  Reactions to understand that we are in a climate crisis and need safer, more environmentally friendly, catalysts. Reactions that propel science into tackling our most difficult problems from energy to medicine. And, yes, reactions that can either lead to an inclusive positive scientific community or one that is negative, condescending, and pushes our best and brightest away from science. What type of science do you want ? What type of science do we currently have ? Are you a “bad” or “good” catalyst ? I have spent my career in chemical engineering and technology, and studying reactions of all types. I have certainly seen many different types of catalysts. I deeply hope that I have been a good catalyst to the thousands of students and colleagues I have interacted with throughout my 25 year career. From my undergraduate days to even becoming a Chemical Engineering Department Chair at Northeastern University for over 7-8 years with contract renewal, I constantly sought to be a catalyst not just for excellent research and education, but also to be inclusive, positive, and forward thinking - a “good” catalyst, a “good” person. Help one another. Pull each other up. Foster positivity. Research is hard enough on its own. How else are we going to generate solutions to our most difficult scientific problems ? Unfortunately, in both chemistry and life, there are plenty of “bad” catalysts – and I have certainly seen my share in academia. Universities are full of “bad” catalysts who go unchecked. Catalysts who can barely get a reaction going on their own, and take pride standing in the way of others. Catalysts who minimize reactions rather than stimulate them. Catalysts far from good who destroy the research and careers of the “good” catalysts just for their own benefit. Bad catalysts who promote non-inclusive environments stifling, and even prohibiting, diversity in people and ideas. Jealous catalysts who are only happy bringing good catalysts down. This cannot and will not be my future, and if you find these bad catalytic environments, do like me, leave that negativity behind and gravitate towards the “good” catalysts. You might have to look long and hard to find them at some Universities, but be persistent – they are there especially in industry. Be a good catalyst - increase your rate of reaction without undergoing a permanent chemical change to yourself - remain “good” since believe me, you are helping improve science. Conferences can be full of “good” catalysts, but many are not. Be careful. Some academic societies and conferences are full of “bad” catalysts - prominent researchers who are only concerned with themselves. Their research is better. Their lab group is bigger. Their funding is greater. You have heard them talk about the same topic so many times, you could give their talk. Don’t waste your time. Instead, find those conferences where the “good” catalysts dominate. This conference is an example, now in its 19th edition. We will emphasize the “good” catalysts building new inclusive reactions.  We will highlight positive science and network with all to become better in our respective fields. We will take a close look at energy, the environment, medicine, and other fields to build new good catalysts. So, please join us either in person or virtually. Become that good catalyst to others. Spread the joy of being a good catalyst and let’s rid science of the bad catalysts that have kept us all down for far too long. I hope to see all you “good” catalysts soon ! And hopefully we too will build some new good catalysts, together, for the good of science, research, and a welcoming community.

19th Edition of Global Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering & Technology | Rome, Italy

Dear congress visitors, It is my honor and great pleasure to write a few welcome notes to you. Through centuries people. were fascinated with the possibilities of synthesis of new materials with extraordinary properties. New materials are practically needed in all domains of life. Design and synthesis of new materials is one of the most important and interesting part of material sciences. Particularly a synthesis of new active and selective catalysts is a very important challenge. Our main aim concentrates on the new methods of the synthesis of single-site hierarchical porous zeolite catalysts with acid-base and redox properties. Such zeolite catalysts with active sites formed by incorporation of heteroelements in their framework are perspective as catalysts of protection of environment and biofeedstock conversion into valuable chemicals.

16th Edition of Global Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering & Technology | Valencia, Spain | Hybrid Event

Chemical Engineering is a field that continues to thrive, making significant contributions towards improving catalysts. Catalysts. An interesting word. According to the Webster’s Dictionary (which I am quite fond of), a catalyst is “an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action.” Catalysts can be physical or psychological. In science, we often just think of physical catalysts to speed up reactions.  But society needs catalysts as well. Physical and psychological catalysts for more efficient alternative energy, proactive medicine, more inexpensive material synthesis, improving the environment, faster process reactions, and so much more. However, frequently, once researchers enter these fields, they often become separated from one another, removing the opportunity to collaborate. Collaborations need catalysts. This is so true especially considering the breakdown of collaborations that occurred during COVID-19. With conferences shut down, University labs closed, travel halted, and so much more, the world almost stopped collaborating during COVID. Catalysts stopped. Collaboration is so important, especially when seeking novel solutions to persistent traditional problems such as improved energy, medicine, green and sustainable materials, nanotechnology, and more. Often times, solutions to one field can help another. They are our catalysts. Yet, we do not know these solutions unless we collaborate, and…..meet. It is now time to make up for lost COVID time and take advantage of every conference available to us. It is time for catalysts to collaborate. I am pleased to encourage you to attend and welcome you to the 16th Edition of Global Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering & Technology (CAT 2023) with the conference theme “Expedite the Future Endeavors in Catalysis and Chemical Engineering”.   Whatever your field of expertise in Chemical Engineering, we all need a catalyst to find those solutions. We all need conferences as our catalyst. Let’s help each other serve as catalysts and discover some great collaborations and solutions to our greatest societal problems. I look forward to seeing you at this catalyst.

16th Edition of Global Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering & Technology

It is an honor and pleasure to write a few welcome notes. Industrial-Scale Nanotechnology today makes unprecedented progress, in catalysis, energy, nanosensing, nanomedicine, materials science. The recent thrust for a decisive leap towards Green-Energy and Circular Economy opens new opportunities to adapt Industrial-Scale Nanotechnology to modern solutions via catalysis, to achieve Green-technologies and to introduce intelligent, differentiated methods to work against climate-crisis. It is not a coincidence that CO2-mitigation via H2-valorisation is diligently achieved in natural Photosynthesis. Since photocatalysis & electrocatalysis by nanomaterials  are based on processes that try to imitate nature, it is obvious that both Industrial-Scale Catalytic Nanotechnology and Artificial Photosynthesis basically could go together. A forward-looking leap via Industrial-Scale Catalytic Nanotechnology will be the future basis for success.

Dear congress visitors, it is a privilege to write some words of welcome to you. A key message is that both Chemistry and Chemical Engineering are now surging forward in the field of Green Hydrogen which will overtake fossil fuels like natural gas and diesel by 2050. The understanding of catalysts for hydrogen and oxygen electrodes in membrane electrolysers and fuel cells is in urgent demand to create a new industry that barely exists at present. Many academic and applied new recruits are needed now to push this exciting field forward fast. Catalyst loading in these devices has dropped by an order of magnitude in the last 20 years, with performance also rising, and lifetime extending significantly. This meeting will be well worth attending to reveal new advances.

16th Edition of Global Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering and Technology | Valencia, Spain

It is my honor to welcome you to this year’s CAT Global Conference. Catalysis plays a leading role in the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering disciplines. The impact of catalysis in modern industrial processes remains unparalleled. However, a historical overview on the catalysis field proves that the progress which has been made in catalysis did not keep up with a comprehensive understanding and a complete interpretation of its phenomenon. To that end, modeling and simulation of complicated catalytic chemical reactions contribute indeed in better studying and analyzing catalytic mechanisms. Afterwards, process engineering can successfully verify, validate, test and optimize the whole chemical process from A-Z facilitating significantly a process scale-up procedure. Seize the opportunity to attend such studies and presentations at CAT Global Conference.

Dear congressional guests attending CAT 2022

It is an honor and a pleasure to write some welcome notes. Extractive Metallurgy today is making unprecedented progress, after several years of new "Chemical Engineering" methods for faster and more precise metal finishing. This opens up new opportunities to adapt modern processes to changing chemical reagents, to achieve higher productivity, and to introduce intelligent, differentiated methods of working against process pests. It is no coincidence that most of the mass process cultures in modern industry are derived from ancestral processes for outdoor heating. The inogarnic industry, seemingly incompatible with those trends, opens up alternative systems of finalization in relation to more exothermic processes and chemical reactions. Metal transfer and finalization and process advanced  are based on similar processes, it is clear that the two industrial strategies can essentially go together. Inorganic Industry - Chemical Engineering, based on Precision Chemical Processes will be the future basis for success.

Dear scholars

It is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you to the CAT-2019 conference that promises to provide innumerable opportunities to network, share ideas and collaborate. Many important chemical reactions require inputs of energy to proceed. Catalysts, however, can promote these transformation by lowering the energy required to complete the reaction. It is hard to imagine the world today without the impact of catalysis on the fundamental aspects required for life, namely energy, food and water. To make a catalyst more efficient, a molecular level understanding of the catalyst material, the reaction kinetics, intermediates, active centers and pathways are important.  Modern diagnosis tools, in particular operando spectroscopies and imaging techniques that are capable of capturing reaction processes at critical length and time scales, have been or are being successfully developed to advance the field of catalysis science that we will be able to learn from this conference.

Dear visitors of CAT 2019

It is a pleasure for me to write some welcome notes . Especially I want to draw your attention to the increasing innovation potential of combining chemical  science with process technology and engineering .

Some people  regard both  (organic and catalytic)  chemistry as well as process technology /chemical engineering as almost mature sciences. I find it interesting that at the interface of these sciences , innovation takes place at a high speed.

As a case in point : The capability to  3-D print reactors in various metals using  technologies at competitive costs , is now  established.  This  enables to unlock  the full potential of e.g. highly exothermic and/or very high (or low)  temperature and/or hazardous chemistries.  This has especially impact on pharmaceutical and other fine- and specialty chemicals fields. We come in an era where ‘the reactor design will follow the chemistry’ instead of the other way around ( ‘ batch reactor’).

Dear colleagues!

I am honored to greet you on the opening of the Catalysis 2019 conference. Catalysis currently occupies a leading place in various fields of chemical technology and environmental protection. The possibilities of catalysis are constantly expanding and they are aimed at obtaining energy carries, fuels and valuable monomers, playing an important role in sustainable development of society. In recent years, much attention is paid to the development of new approaches to obtaining highly active and selective catalytic systems, as well as to using of new raw materials for important products producing. Globally, chemical nanotechnologies are fully related to the development of efficient new generation catalysts what is linked to understanding of mechanisms of active centers evolution, which ensure high activity of important catalytic reactions. I express the hope that the conference will allow us to hold a fruitful discussion and exchange our views on important aspects of catalysis.
