Dear Colleagues attending to the International Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering and Technology (CCT, Tokyo 18-19 May 2019)
It is a great pleasure for me to send you this short welcome address, to underline how the three themes reported in the title represent a key background and a promising input to develop novel economic and environmentally friendly industrial processes.
We are fully convinced that the importance of the topics covered by this conference will attract many important “players” with different expertise, who will guarantee synergetic effects in the different fields and favor the self-fertilization of the competences and the scientific exchanges. The technological improvement of the knowledge and the consequent developments of novel industrial processes require multidisciplinary approaches to remove the relevant drawbacks of some current processes, preserving the added value and having real application perspectives.
To achieve this goal, it is necessary to be able to revise critically the existing literature and develop new ideas and collaborations focused to open new scientific ways. From this point of view, CCT 2020 represents an exciting opportunity to meet different competencies and establish new contacts focused to develop research collaborations.
Thus, welcome to Tokyo and enjoy the Meeting!
