Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the 11th International Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering and Technology (CCT 2022)
Catalysis lowers activation barriers and enables chemical reactions at lower temperatures compared to uncatalyzed ones. Therefore, catalysis is an evergreen in academia and in industry, allowing to conduct processes more efficiently, eventually to perform them at all. In addition, also the future will be strongly dominated by the discovery, development and implementation of novel catalytic reactions. Ultimately, mega challenges, such as climate change, and mega trends, such as sustainability at a simultaneously growing world population, will heavily rely on new solutions in catalysis.
This conference initiates, fosters and triggers thought exchange between scientists working in various fields of catalysis research and application, bringing together scholars and practitioners, researchers in homogeneous and heterogenous catalysis ranging from solid state, molecular and biomolecular catalysis. All this offers a unique opportunity to network and exchange thoughts, create new collaborations for ultimately progressing the field of knowledge, for improving existing processes and for finding new solutions to eminent problems.
Inevitably, CCT 2022 will act as a catalyst itself amongst us scientists. Thus, welcome and enjoy the Meeting!
