FUELS FROM ALTERNATIVE FEEDSTOCKS AND DEVELOPMENT OF ENVIRONMENTALLY-BENIGN PROCESSES
The efficient utilizations of natural (shale) gases have been receiving enormous interest as an alternative feedstock. C1 chemistry is one of the important methodologies for producing clean fuels and chemicals using heterogeneous catalysts. In our laboratory, the synthesis of alcohols, hydrocarbons and chemical intermediates from syngas has been investigated using ordered mesoporous catalysts through some novel preparation routes such as sol-gel, nano-casting or nano-sized material synthesis. Efficient conversion of biomass into useful chemicals and fuels has been studied via catalytic conversion routes. The application of micro-structured reactors has been our research topics for the development of compact chemical processes.
HIGHLY EFFICIENT HETEROGENEOUS CATALYSTS AND DESIGN OF COMPACT REACTORS
The preparation of ordered mesoporous heterogeneous catalysts by sol-gel or nano-casting method and the synthesis of nanosized materials are of our interest to develop efficient heterogeneous catalytic systems. In addition, conventional reaction systems such as lab-scale fixed bed reactor, stirred tank reactor and novel micro-structured reactor are designed and applied for further application of compact chemical process design as well. Development of reaction kinetics is also one of main research parts for the development of efficient integrated chemical processes.
