Catalytic Process Engineering (CPE) laboratory is engaged in the development and understanding of catalyzed processes and reactor engineering concepts dedicated to sustainable energy conversion technologies.


The Team



May 2018 - Jose presented his work "In-situ spatially-resolved measurements of gas composition profiles and catalyst surface temperature to obtain high quality kinetic data. Study case: CO2 methanation" at the 25th International Symposium on Chemical Reaction Engineering (ISCRE 25), Florence Italy!

May 2018 - We welcome our new PhD student Varun Surendran.

Feb 2018 - Jose's paper "Improved Kinetic Data Acquisition Using An Optically Accessible Catalytic Plate Reactor with Spatially-Resolved Measurement Techniques. Case of Study: CO2 Methanation" has been accepted and published in a special issue Special Issue Design Challenges for Catalytic and Photocatalytic Reactors in Catalysts. Congrats!
