Kinetics and Catalysis

Our core competence is within heterogeneous catalysis and encompasses materials synthesis and catalyst preparation, characterization and performance testing. We are linking the properties of the nano-level of catalyst surfaces with society needs for sustainable energy, high quality fuels, hydrogen, olefins, future bio-refining and environmental.

Key competence:

  • Nano-science and engineering
  • Synthesis design and characterization
  • Kinetics (rates and mechanisms)
  • Deactivation
  • Performance testing
  • Reactor and process technology
  • Modeling of reaction kinetics

Typical areas of application:

  • Gas to liquids
  • Gas to chemicals
  • Green fuels
  • Biomass conversion
  • Compact conversion
  • Sustainable energy


  • Oil and gas industry
  • Energy companies
  • Petrochemical companies
  • Research council and EU
