We are a research group committed to do groundbreaking research in chemical production routes using alternative sources. The targets of these routes are hydrogen, olefins, "cleaner" fuels or platform chemicals. We innovate in the following aspects:

  • Design of reactors, contactors, catalysts, processes or systems
  • Use alternative sources like wastes (CO2, poliolefins, tires...)  or biomass
  • Use revamped refinery infrastructure or novel dedicated processes
  • Understand the fundamental relation between catalyst properties, performance and deactivation
  • Kinetic modeling of the thermo-catalytic processes
