Recent trends in heterogeneous catalysis are exceeding traditional applications in industrial reactors and expanding into new areas, such as health, personal protection, climate and energy.

Emerging catalysts operate in unconventional environments, such as living cells, ionic liquids or supercritical fluids. Also, unconventional methods for local and selective catalyst activation such as microwaves, light, plasma, ultrasounds or magnetic fields, are explored, aiming to provide the energy needed directly to the catalyst, replacing the traditional, fossil fuel-based reactor heating. This is accompanied by the development of new, unconventional catalyst manufacturing technologies and reactor concepts.

Catalysis “beyond the reactor” presents a research area, in which interdisciplinary collaborations between the classical catalysis science, chemical and materials engineering, physics, electrical engineering, energy technology, biology or medicine play crucial role. The aim of this conference is to bring together representatives of those collaborating disciplines to provide insights on the latest developments and to help map the future of this exciting research area.
